Default Re: But what about the future?

I'm wondering if the neverending screws being put to the noise standards are a worse threat.

Yeah, first Federalized car came out in 1968; it was all downhill from there. Actually, the 70's cars weren't so bad; it was all the crazy emission control devices they had to come up with, that goofed ‘em up.

I'm not sure how many bikes Triumph sold. Next to HD or any of the Japanese manufacturers they're pretty small so the actual numbers aren't going to be that big. I do know they sold at least one bike because I bought it.

Be that as it may a 34% increase in sales is still a nice jump. Harley has done well for the last 15 years and I think thats great. They're well made, reliable and attractive bikes, a real American success story.

The other poster merely pointed out that as a percentage Triumph sales have increased more than Harleys. No need to get your knickers in a twist over that, There's room at the top for Harley as well.

Not that bad? You do have amnesia! Can you spell Pinto? K-Car? New Mustang?



Junk. Utter junk.



Worse than Fiat 850s.

Fuel injection development was originally for diesels I believe. Then it was further driven by the demand for aircraft that could fly inverted. It was more than slightly embarassing for your fighter to stall when taking negative G's.



Motorcycle injection is a pretty late development. Nothing to brag about.

I had 2 Pintos, they were actually pretty good cars. Now if you're talking about 4 ton *****-barge LTDs, Caprices or Vista Cruisers you're right. Overweight, ill handling, numb steering, put-you-through-the-windshield brakes, gas hog rolling turds, all except my '69 440 Fury 111 ex-cop car I got when I got out of the Navy. That was a runner.
