I'm pissed the local Triumph dealer has no Speed 3's around. I would seriously take a look at one, but with none in the showroom they may lose a sale. That Busa Limited has my eye at the moment. I have a dealer that is calling in some favors to get me one at a killer price. If he gets one in I may be a Suzuki owner again, although my last one was a 78 GS 750!

The worst part about Triumph doing well is the fact that it will impossible to wipe that grin off Sarnali's face.

Well, where are all those geniuses who predicted that Triumph would go bankrupt because they would lose their shirts over the RocketIII?



Yeah, building big cruisers for the US market is a really big mistake (sarcasm off).

I think the one, and only, genius that predicted that left the building a while back.

Most excellent. Here's to hoping that they continue the trend.



While I'm not a cruiser guy and not terribly interested in the Rocket 3....I was mightly impressed that it does not feel NEARLY as heavy as it is.



Hmmm, potential tourer?



And the new Speed Triple. Yikes, I need my meds!

I've heard the next Triumph Tourer (New Trophy, perhaps?) will be based on the Rocket III.



Makes sense, and Triumph is BIG on platform sharing.



Look at the RIII and squint, imagine hard bags and a full fairing...

Glad to hear it. Not sure if anythings coming up higher than the Daytona/Sprint at this point in the "next" voting. Can't wait for the reviews on the 1050's. Still think the Sprint with a Daytona spec engine may make "The Ultimate Motorcycle" IMHO. More and more the most important "stat" to me is the "smiles per mile factor", Triumph seems to be making killer numbers in that area lately.

You're wrong on that one. There were at least a dozen different personalities inhabiting that particular skull.
