To me it read more like a send up of the office banter so often seen in motojournal land, but then my head more closely resembles a spinnaker. Actually, Burns' use of this often lame device has produced some memorable lines, i.e. "Carrithers (who'd complain ifhe were hung with fresh rope)..." Hilarious.

If you want to get technical, we did... but I'm bored with this and this is not the forum. Nice car. Wish I fitted in one, but I'm too tall.

I have a 99' Speed Triple with a Yoshimura slip- on. Ride it through town at low speed and people look up, expecting a B-17 on a carpet bombing mission! It sounds like nothing else!! Do yourself a favor and try one!

Easy on the (--Ed.) Burns. I am certain you didn't care for it when Boehm did it to you. If you want to write the article, just write it.



Never the less, welcome aboard and I look forward to your clever wit and brilliant insight going forward.



Anyone who has made a post on this board and still hasn't subscribed... What are you waiting for? Since MO went subscription, there have been a plethora of excellent reviews. Every magazine covers the same bikes in the same order and at least MO gets it to you first and without the manufacturer's advertising dollar bias. Pony up!

A hilarious line, indeed. Too bad it's as old as the hills.

Seruzawa you idiot! Don't you know better than to post the same stupid thing twice? Better check your meds!

I own a 99 Speed3 in green. If you think it looks cool in boring black you should see it in what one friend called slurpee green. Needless to say, I love my bike.



So, my only problem is the change in body work Triumph has made. Now rather than a sexy, exotic euro machine we have what looks like a less interesting Japanese look alike. Thank the biking God's that Ducati has not taken this path.
