Have faith, with the new spirit of cooperation and non-partisanship in Washington, I'm sure the Republicans and Democrats are going to reach a budget agreement that not only begins to reduce the deficit, but also protects critical social "safety-net" programs like Medicare and Social Security.

Doom and gloom is sooo 2012....here's to a bright future in 2013!

No doubt. At least that's a topic we actually know a few things about.

Yes we are...

Speaking of bikes, no snow to speak of here in CO. It is tough, as I could go riding on the dirt bike, but there are a bunch of frustrated hunter types out there in the riding areas. Seems all the big critters have stayed up high in the hills due to the mild conditions.

Twas a dirt bike year, I think I put more miles (certainly way more hours) on the 'Berg than on the street bike this year. The FZ1 is finally getting ridden. Better late than never

Tons of snow here. I think Mt Baker has a 103 inch base already, too bad I'm not a skier. As long as it stays above 1k feet I'm good, once it gets below that it starts dusting my neighborhood and while I love snow it's a pain to get around in, specially since I foolishly traded my trusty old Exploder for a snazzy fuel efficient Fusion. At least it has traction control,,,don't know what the hell I was thinking.

Kenneth if you want upright comfy Triumph cool without the rear sets and low bars of the Thruxton then try out the Scrambler or T 100. Both would be fun though with the Scrambler you get the 270 stroke and not the 360, still with a nice fruity pipe on there they sound and run like poop through a goose. They'd look good next to the Mini as well, Image is of course everything..

No snow to speak of here yet. I'd still be riding the Tiger if the clutch cable hadn't broken and it wasn't on back order...... grumble grumble. Note to self... always keep a spare clutch cable.

The DR350 just doesn't handle the Interstate all that well.

I had the same trouble with my Trophy but it was the speedo cable so I didn't worry too much about it. Triumph isn't know for fast parts turn-around I'm afraid.

They say the cable will be here next week. I can get one made if need be but snow is on its way. In any case there will be a spare cable in my riding kit. The first one broke after only 17K.

I checked out this bike yesterday in Long Beach. The ergonomics are more than agreeable as well as the fit and finish. The green color fit the bike well. If I had the room I would have one.
