Well, I figured Maltese Cross wheels were a given.

Hmm, will the motor be 'tuned for torque'? Hopefully not.

Default Excellent Point

Cool ideas acecycleins . Keep posting them maybe some Triumph guy will read MO and bring it up in a staff meeting. Besides your stuff is much more interesting than reading the Kook Bashing or pessimistic grumbling by the GPTB..

Yes, but that was a wholly different shade of obnoxious green and not to be confused with Kawi's own special brew.



If you had any balls you'd get it painted that hot metallic pink color that Triumph called "Nuclear Red."



(I've actually seen a pic of a naked 675 special that was painted that green color and it looked pretty good, surprisingly.)

No motor mods just a programmable FI system for those looking for different performance for different situations.

I have a friend, used to tell me "Never ride a Green bike - you'll die on one if you do."



He said this was some old Biker-Superstition.



Any of you guys ever hear of that?

Default You sure he wasn't just confused?

Maybe he meant "Never take the green acid."

There's no shortage of m/c superstitions:



You'll flip over if you use your front brake.

Lay 'er down before you hit something.

Never use the rear brake.

Sportbikes are safer then other bikes.

Speed kills.

Cars stop quicker than bikes.

You can't use your brakes in a turn.

If you polish your bike it will rain..... er' wait, that one's true I think.



One could fill a book with nonsense that m/cists believe.



On another note: If we are experiencing global warming why is it the coldest winter here in decades? We used to have a few days of nice weather in January each year so I could pull my bikes out and blow out the cobwebs. This year it's really sucking.

As a current member of the "I'm so damn sick of the BMW F650GS" club, I would vote for a Tiger Cub in a second if they could build it with varying seat heights so us wee folks could use it. Then again, a baby Speed would be da bomb around town, too. Heck, Triumph, just give me options! That 675 triple mill is just too damn lovely to waste on just a track wanker's wet dream.
