I'll bring it there! After being in SD, Chicago just wouldn't do much for you. Have anywhere in mind we could stop for lunch??

Triumph is making a heck of a bike lineup these days. I could have at least 3 in the stable if I was Leno rich. The Sprint is real nice and the RocketIII is a wild ride. The Thruxton and Bonnie are classics. Lots to like for sure. Can I stay in the GPTB if I get one?

Getting an 04 S3 might be a possibility also. I really liked that bike too. Good to know the ergos didn't change too much. Being a bit larger than average, I really don't want a cramped ride.

You can keep your membership in force if you remember to pour some used oil on the ground under your Triumph. Sprinkle a couple of nuts and washers too. Gotta keep up the traditions!

It is a sweet bike indeed. And much more juice. Bet it really honks. Good choice. The '05 S3 was tops on my list but I couldn't hold out and got an brand new '03 SV1000 at an extreme discount.

You didn't even make it to SD. As far as you got was the 909 (Riverside County). Most Temeculans consider themselves Northern San Diegans though.



You can ask our friend Ebass if I know some of the finer roads in SD.

If they did it would be looked at as just another Japanese copy-cat, and they wouldn't use decent stainless hardware like Triuph, or decent powdercoating like Triumph, and unlike Triumph they'd charge a fortune for it.

longride is an original, like you, buz and I, he can't get kicked out.



If he gets out of line we'll rat-pack him and make him buy beer

Leading the market in new directions is hardly what Honda's about these days. Don't expect a triple from them anytime soon.

Default I'll Third that!

I've owned Triumph since late (October) 1994! I've had at least 15 since then, and I've had NO issues with the machines.



15 +/- since 1994??? No wonder my wife thinks I'm nuts! And yes, I actually put some miles on some of the bikes!



Talk about a lousy reputation for quality!
