How about a three-stroke long cylinder engine? That would seem to be better in my humble opinion...this is a joke, right?

I might even sell the vintage Volvo for this bike. The 800 triple with over 100hp and dirt ready sounds wonderful.

"A triple is also more refined than a twin, which means that the bike is less tiring and less intrusive on the open road."

Not necessarily so. Yamaha has come up with an adventure bike Super Ténére 1200. Although its a twin, according to first test I read it is ultrasmooth and makes even the BMW GS feel decidedly agricultural.

The GS is agricultural, didn't you listen to Schickelgrubber?...."Who do I look like, farmer Giles? If I wanted to go ploughing I'd have bought a proper tractor"
