Default What the Hell?

Remember that Triumph / Harley Davidson collaboration everyone was talking about a year ago?

I hear a small army of attorneys running in the background.

How come it says "enema" on the tank?

Dunno! It's puzzling, ambiguous, and inexplicable!


I don't know why MCN teased the article that way. IIRC, there's nothing Harley about that bike, which is a full custom built with a Triumph powertrain.

That's exactly what it is.

But, HD is so prone to suing anyone who uses any variety of their trademarks, even "Hawg" for crissakes, it wouldn't suprise me if they did.

Interesting concept. But clipons wreck it. It needs superbike bars and a more reasonable seating position.

Not sure why anyone would use the name "Sportster" from a Johnny-come-lately company on a Triumph.

Well Triumph is name spinning on Ford with the Explorer 1200, which I have to say will be my next bike. I'm pretty impressed with the one at the IMS, if it rides as well as it looks it'll be a real hot seller.

The Sprint GT was pretty nice also, a set of GenMars would probably bring it all right into line.
