I had to get a few miles under my belt before I was sure I’d heard correctly, but yes, she’s Morrigan.
Warrior witch queen… yup, sounds about right. Not as ludicrously insane as a ‘king Rocket III but mad enough. Black as a crow, slick as an eel, with a roar that would make a wolf think thrice.
A totally different riding experience to Pumpkin, and more relaxed… this is a good thing that may keep me alive a little longer. I can’t wait to get out on a day long (or days long) ride.
Anyhow, she’s a Triumph Thunderbird Storm 1700cc parallel twin, and she says hello.
