Here ya go.

Biggest problem riding it is that every time you 'blip' the throttle, the bike tries to do a barrel roll.

Well, that - and the thing can't make a turn at any corner smaller than a four-lane.

Buying plugs in sets of a dozen kinda sucks...

Stop it, you're scaring the kids.

But seriously, that's the sport tourer from Triumph? It looks pretty good without the bags. I really looked hard at that bike, but the damn dealer was the same dope who wouldn't sell me a Ducati. I guess he expects people to beg for a bike.

Ken,
A 2003 model, it's the 'old' (not 'oldest') version ('99 - '01; '02 - '04). The 'new' ones ('05 - '07)are 1050cc, and are much more angular in their styling. The '08s and '09s have been modified slightly in the ergo department.

The stock bags on the older bikes are fairly large, and watertight. If you look closely at the picture, you can see the mounting rails. I think they are butt-ugly and detract from the look of the bike, but whatcha gonna do? The pipe is mounted in the 'low' position.

You're in Alabama, right? Good on the Ford truck, but where are the old appliances?

I've mentioned it before, and will do so again - if ever you feel the urge to divest yourself of that CB-1, you make certain to post it up HERE, First. Mmmm-Kay?
