I've got a fleet of three right now that I don't have time to ride. I'll have to downsize first before I pick up anything new.



The new Sprint is sweet though.

After one ride on that monster, I knew it would sell pretty well. It's got power with a capital "P" and it rides really nice. Is it possible the haters are wrong again?

Ummmmm, Honda makes 3 bikes that you could call a "replica racer"(CBR,RC51), Then there's the Super Hawk, the VFR800, and the CBR600F4i that are sporty, but not "replica" material; Then you've got the 919, and last year's 599; then you've got 8 different cruiser-type bikes ranging from 250cc to 1800cc(Rebel, Rune), a Gold Wing and an ST1300. Plus, about 12 diferent dirt bikes in either 2-stroke, or 4. As well as 5 diferent kinds of scooters. Banality? I can't think of a more diverse product line.

That is a seriously fun bike. They shoulda' called it a Trident though.



A little spendy given my newfound single parent status, and I really want a Thruxton, but it's definately a kick in the butt

(speaking of the Speed Triple, I wonder why MO hasn't yet tested the KTM 990 SuperDuke by now)

I'm surprised to hear that the Rocket is selling well. I've yet to see one on the road. But, then again, I do live in the sticks. I sure hope they look better in person. I'll take the new ST, thank you very much.

And they would do even better, if they had better dealer coverage!

That'll be a big change for me. I'm already dumb enough to own a Shovelhead!

1000 bikes a month spread out across the US doesn't mean you're likely to see one on any given day except where a hundred bikes gather.



Is Triumph quality still beating the Japanese? It should they are underpowered for their displacement.
