Default 4 out of 5 dentists surveyed

Pick the MV Agusta Brutale as a perfect bike for jarring backroads and filing enormous claims for crown prep and dental implants.

I saw that Trumpet's dropped the 1200 Trophy. Too bad. We need more large displacement sport tourers on the market. Not less. Something to counter the super porky ST1300 and the porky FJR1300.

Don't you solve that problem by only riding on the rear wheel?

Default Help.

Oh no. Dueling Prophets. I can hear the banjos now. I need 'deliverance' from religious fanatics.

Their answer is the Sprint ST, though that's way more toward the Sport side of Sport tourer.

Part of the reason I bought the Trophy is because I wanted a 4cyl. Sport tourer that wasn't overly complex and weigh a ton. I figured I'd better get on while I could.

Perhaps Triumph will build a 1300 cc sport tourer using the 4 cylinder engine developed for the 'Hayabusa-beater' they decided not to market in the last minute.



It's a bit hard to see why they would spend so much money on developing that engine if they don't plan to use it at some point.



On the other hand, quite possibly Triumph will concentrate on the retro/cruiser market for the time being.



What I can't believe is that they didn't take the RS.S in production as it's only a minor update but it just looks the bees-knees...

I've heard thats's what they're going to do with the 1300, I've also read where they're going to concentrate on the retro and cruiser lines so who knows?

The idiot states that Honda likes racing inline fours. WOW. What a fuc&ing prediction. Kinda like saying a bear likes to shyt in the woods. I wonder if he predicted that they do that too?

Default Re: Casual Protective Gear

I have the Alpinestars pants, but haven't crashed (hope I don't need to test that part). The pants though are relatively cool, pads stay in place (while riding), and work with or without pants beneath.... at least it's hard to see that your going commando if that's your thing. Easy on and off helps too.

Default Re: KPaul looking for cool jeans

I have a pair of Hood Jeans. Got them last year. About $90 at that exchange rate, so more now. I got them over the Draggin Jeans as they have a full Kevlar set inside, so it doesn't have the "patched" look of the Draggin Jeans. So far so good. Haven't crash tested them. I use them for commuting, but for trips and sport riding I use the Aerostich.

They run a bit small in the waist, but a bit long. Something to keep in mind if you order them.

Overall I give them a thumbs up.

BMW has some similar jeans. I looked at them, but they were about $250 and didn't fit quite right on me.

There's also a company in Israel called Brosh or BroshTex with some similar stuff.

Sounds like MO needs "casual gear round 2"
