Default Re: Nekkid 675 Spy Shots?

A mini Tiger has been hinted at. Taking that aproach you would think that Triumph could easily sell a (what would they call it?) "Triumph Tiger Cub" for around $8000. Pretty sweet.......

"We're idiots -- we don't buy naked bikes."



Wind protection is idiotic? Who knew?



"We don't buy street focused single cylinder bikes either. Those work in a European (to wit: a smart) market, NOT in a U.S. marketplace."



"Smart" has nothing to do with it. It's a different culture with different geography and different priorities. There aren't many places in the US where a single is "smarter" than anything else.

Wouldn't that make it a "Chick Bike" though?



What a MAN needs is a real MAN'S bike - something that will probably seriously injure you just getting on it and starting it up. With a parking-space drop having a 97.6% chance of being Fatal.........

No, he's right - the U.S. is a Stupid Market. That's why the Koreans and Chinese are staying-away like we've the Plague or something.

I watched a bunch of guys getting on and off the GS Adventure at IMS. Just a bunch of awkward, luggage kicking panic. Another 100 horses and that would be a man's bike.

I'd ride a 115hp 675 Tiger. Outside of the torque difference in the 1050 version, bet the thing would be a hoot at track days.

The transmitter is to steer you away from buying a Ford Crown Victoria or a Buick LeSabre.

Default Well, I 'm and Idiot, and I did!

Many people that know me will gladly attest that I am an Idiot, almost full time, and I did in fact buy a nekked.....



Maybe that's the only thing keeping me from being full time......hmmmmm.



The reason I think I'm an Idiot (although unrepentant) is that I bought one of the best handling bikes that exists, "own the corners" and all that, and I live in an area that has nothing but straight friggin roads!

There are like 6 S-curves within about 50 miles of me..... I liken it to having a full size real life Barbie doll that is unfortunately anatomically like the doll. I spend a lot of time thinking about what I could be doing......



Anyway, we buy what we like, and we love (hopefully) what we buy!



Ain't NONE of it Idiotic.



(if you don't agree with me, you're an Idiot, by the way......)
