Wrong this time! I'm pretty much settled on picking up a Tiger for my month long 'round the USA trip in 2011. I figure there will be a fair number of used 1050s by then.

OTOH my daughter just bought a 150cc Stella scooter. Naturally since she's using my garage I have riding rights. I've been riding big street bikes for so long I forgot what a hoot those little things are. I had to restrain myself from giggling maniacally as I was whooping it up around the neighborhood yesterday. Too bad it's pink with hippie flower decals. I'm trying to convince my wife to get a black one so I can ride it without so much embarrassment. I'll bet AirHawk wants one now!

The ST is nice... I may have to put it on the short list. I'm hoping to get a faired bike within the next 18 months as a stable mate for the Aprilia.

The S3 is way cool. I test rode one a couple of years ago and liked it alot. Since I already have a naked, I doubt I would buy one, but they are lots of fun.

When I was in the market for a new bike in 2005, I visited Hyde Park Triumph in Inglewood, to check out the three cylinder models. Since I did my own work on bikes most of the time, I looked at the Triumph motor with all those little coolant hoses and doo-dads everywhere, and realized it would be darn near impossible for me to do my own maintenance, and god forbid major work if something big broke down the road a few years. So I bought a Buell. Big mistake.

Glad you liked the write-up, boys. These bikes are highly entertaining and worth a spin if you ever get a chance. Stay tuned for the Daytona in an upcoming shootout and a test of the Street Triple. Further down the road, we'll likely see a baby Tiger built around that wonderful 675cc Triple.

Anyone know that Guy in MI that hit the mega millions? I could use a mil to fill the garage. Too many tasty rides out there and the Trumpets are a sweet line up.

The Tigers definately on the short list next to the Buelly Uly and V Strom. I shoulda' bought one when I got the Bonnie but I was overcome with nostalgia and ignored the fact that I'm a fairly large fella and the T100 is a fairly small bike..

After I wear out my Bandit I'll have to make the jump....'course I want a new Escalade too, gotta' give the bunny huggers something to cry about.

Didn't Triumph already decide that it's plausible and are willing to re-introduce the Tiger Cub name?

I'd wave the Triumph flag, but there's no reaason to pile on...

I was just by Clinton Cycles outside of DC, and looked at the Rocket Touring.

Verrrry nice!

The guy had already put several accessories in it, including a windshield so tall I asked if it also served as a shelter when hung horizontally.

Off-brand, but the HD/Buell dealership off of Rte 210 has a new '07 Ulysses (Black) for $8900. I think that's a DEAL!
