Default Re: Triumph in 8th?

My bad. Apologies for that one. The full spec page had the data correctly supplied though. Sometimes the EXIF data given to me from the tachometer is rattled when it's been ridden too hard! -ap

"if this happened in the print mags, they'd just postpone the article for another 2 months and not speak a word of any incidents incurred."



Which would be the right way to go about it. I don't want to know how stupid these people are. But I'm sure Honda/Yamaha/Kawasaki/Suzuki/Ducati/Triumph/Aprilia are pleased to know...



It's kind of like guy telling his kid how he repeatedly gets the crap beat out of him at work for eating another guy's lunch. There's no redeeming quality to the tale, the guy just looks stupid, and the kid loses respect for him.



Pathetic.

Default Honestly...

...that's the only POSSIBLE explanation! I'm used to getting buzzed by Dirty at least 2 or 3 times per sesh when we're on the track together. Last time I was out with Mike, he crashed his motard in front of me, got up and passed me on the same lap. So you'll have to pardon me for savoring the moment, illigitimate though it may be.

Buy the Daytona. You will be glad that you did. I wish I had a spare 10K laying around because if I did I'd own one as soon as I could get down to Salt Lake City and pay the man. It is a wonderful bike in every way that is important to me and ought to be important to 99% of prospective literbike buyers.

My bad. Thank you for pointing these out. Not only am I a hillbilly but it's evidently rubbing off on my word processor as well. Sheesh



I duff my nose back at you.
