You'll get kicked out of the GPTB if you do.

As others have already said, I think the S3's rear-end is very much like the Lightning. Not a bad thing, overall a better looking bike than before. Oh yeah, how 'bout Triumph's new Futura?



By the way, the undertail exhaust craze has got to stop! The only good looking undertail exhaust setups were on the 916/996/998 Ducs and the MV Agusta F4s. Yamaha came close with the R1, but the heat shields ruin it.



Now if they could just get the Daytona 600/650 to quit smiling at me.......

I bought a 2004 Daytona 955i (yellow) a few weeks ago. The dealer gave me the bike for $8800, then subtracted a $500 customer rebate. Total price was $9300 out the door. I love the bike, especially the motor. Don't really think it needs more power, but it could stand to shed 30 or 40 lbs.

I was quite impressed with the performance, handling and especially the comfortable ergos of the Daytona 600. For most riders, even big guys like myself (6'3) this bike is a perfect match. Let's be real, we're not riding with Mladin every Sunday. We're with our buddies and I think Triumph has done a great job fulfilling the "real world" 600 niche.

I'm hot for Triumph! I'm buying an ST and mounting a video camera on the back end just so I can look at it while I'm riding.

Excuse me, but I'm having difficulty mopping up the saliva out of my keyboard...



The new ST's pipes solve the problem with the previous model where the pipe had two positions, high and low. The low was necessary to clear the bags, but puts it perilously close to the pavement. The pipe also hides the open wheel hub, which is a shame. I can't tell from the pictures, but hopefully they have cleaned up the bag mounting system, which really gorped up the look of the bike when the bags were not mounted. Not to mention the location of the seat latch lock.



Man, are those bags W-I-D-E, or what? I was looking to see if there were clearance lights mounted on them.



What can you say about the S3? Triumph took the ultimate Hooligan and made it even more anti-social! And, a 1050? Jeez, like the speedometer doesn't try to smack you in the mouth all the time now!



As far as a racer Bonny, there is a project going on down 'round these parts to make a flattracker out of a 750. 'Sposedly with factory assistance.



Gotta go get another towel!

Check out the French company Mecatwin (www.mecatwin.com) to see what they've done with the Thruxton. Unfortunately, that page hasn't been translated yet, although the Harley section is available in English.
