wouldn't it be cool to get a long-term new Speed Triple for me to ride and report on every 3 or 4 months?! a blue one.

Motorcyclist had a review of the ST last month and they seemed to like the bike. Went on about how good it sounded. Hopefully the limeys will undo the craniorectal inversion and give one to MO so we can get some good video and sound to judge for our independent selves. I do really like the styling, especially the pipes with the singlesided swingarm, and headlamps. If you guys get one please let us know how the lights are at night. For those of us that commute or actually ride at night it is important...you can't always ride with the high beams on at night. I wish we had a dealer near here so I could check it out. Are Triumphs generally reliable?

Is it just me or are the sport touring options getting better and better? If they would just make them a little lighter I would consider getting one. I rode the FJR the other day and liked the power and it handled pretty well for such a heavy bike, but you could really feel the weight. I wonder if Honda will come up with a better VFR for 06? Maybe put the old 954 motor in it and make it weigh less than 400 pounds. That would be excellent!

Default By the way

Nice job on that groovy custom in the recent Cycle World.



You've still got the magic touch.

My honda dealer tells me the dealer meeting next month should shed light on the '06 VFR. I hope it turns out to be the 1000cc V5.

probly with whole new layer of electro-mechanical masturbation if so, thereby further deadening the experience while increasing the complexity, expense and weight. Yick. Isn't the Speed Triple like $9995 or something? such a deal. i rather have speed triple than 2 vfrs unless one was rc30 maybe.

Are we ever gonna see the 2nd tier supersport shootout? You know, the one with the ZZR600, CBR F4i, and the YZF600R?
