Rano Aarden’s 1978 Triumph Tiger 750

Here is a picture of my '78 Triumph Tiger 750, that I bought in 1984 for $1,500 - all stock at the time with 5,000 miles on it. But through the many years, it has gone through what I [like to] call my own taste of what a classic Triumph should look like. This year I have put it on the road with antique plates since this year it's 25 years old... I like the old Brit bikes. Nothing against the Hinkleys but they're not the same... they may ride better and go faster but that's not why I ride. These old classics remind me of the old WWII fighter planes when we ride in formation buzzing down the streets of New England. I'm glad to be with the BIA and have been for 12 years.
