Default Re: Record Sales for Triumph

Thanks guys ..... I took out the 05' today, for about 10-12 miles. I like the height, reminds me of riding my old RM 250. And maybe I'm getting old, but the riding position is comfortable as heck. I am finding that riding posture is quickly becoming a top priority. I'm not looking at it for real dirt riding, just down an old logging trail or grass path once in a while here in the Northeast. It may take me a few miles to get used to the top heavy feeling I sensed when winding left to right to left through the twisties. It seems that for the money this is a nice bike and it was fun to test ride.

Yep, 130 rwhp seems like plenty for the street to me too, especially with a comfy ride and a SWEET sounding engine. You lucky dog.

I just read on another site that Triumph may be developing a larger displacement Bonneville. The engine is said to be a 1500cc parallel twin derived from the R3 motor--one cylinder lopped off and the entire unit turned ninety degrees. Start drooling now, dude.
