Recently I had the chance to spend some days in Tuscany, south of Siena.
I have seen there the best curves for my motorbike and the best landscape of Italy.

In 1968 Triumph was facing the beginning of the crisis trying to resist to the emerging power of the Japanese bikes.

After some year of hard studies on prototypes the Unified Company Triumph-BSA presented the new T150, Trident with 3 cylinders.

But maybe was too late, Honda CB four was already in many bike shops.

In 1990 the New Triumph started again where the story was finished, presenting a new Trident . This time with 900 cc and always with 3 cylinders.

In my personal opinion both models, the old and the “new” ones are really charming bikes, even if, while the old Trident is really a vintage- classic-ultra expensive motorbike, maybe the Trident 900 can easily found at reasonable price and can be easily modified to obtain a very nice Café Racer.

It was prettty popular in the early 20ties to ride with Indians or Harley on wood board like these in the U.S.
A special aerodinamic position was achieved by using these reverse hand bar.

This is one on the most elegant and fast monotype & monohull "derive" of the sailing histroy.
Designed at the beginning of fifties by Conrad Gulcher and Uus Van Essen immediatly became famous for its racing properties and 1960 was introduced as Olimpic Class.
Probably it is the boat with the major number of innovation through the moder era, like:

- first boat to use a trapeze gear
- first boat to introduce the genoa
- first to use the spinnaker pole launcher
- Self draining cockpit
And many others
The numbers are also impressive and easily express its racing attitude
