No, but everyone always talks about Triumph this and that and they aren't much bigger.

Horsecrap. I've ridden with plenty of people who came out of the MSF class who are better riders than some of the bozos who have been riding for years. No, they don't have experience, and yes, they still have a lot to learn, but compare what they have to do with what a boat buyer has to do. Any a-hole can go buy a 100 mph boat, blast across the bay, usually while drinking, with NO TRAINING WHATSOEVER. If the two-day MSF course doesn't suit you, what do you suggest? A week at the track learning apexing, power slides, and trail braking? I'm all for it, let's subsidize it with tax money so it's affordable.

True, but Triumph sells over 10K bikes in the US alone with sales increasing very rapidly. Victory is just barely expanding.



It's too bad because the Victorys look like much better motorcycles than HDs.

I agree with the Victory statement. They are expanding rapidly for a new clone manufacturer, but have a good product. I know I'd get a Victory before I got a Harley.

Default Re: Another thing Harley was out front on

Great to hear.. I love the looks of the Buell. Be trying to get the courage to go buy one.. i.e face the wrath of the wife etc. I think I use the engine thing as an excuse. I am sure the bike can handle a rider way way better than I..

They went out of the bike business, now they just sell clothes and stuff.
