Yeah but if cell phones, cigarettes and bail money are flying out of your jacket on a slick road, wouldn't you want ABS?

Only if it can be vrtually transparent, a low burble in the background at most. I still say the ultimate system would allow a non-linked/ non-ABS "Sport" mode for "Fun" and a grab em and stop mode for normal riding, BOTH. If I have to choose I'll take non-linked/non-ABS.



And another thing, if I wasn't so interested in getting out behind Sean on an interesting looking piece of road while I was on the ZZR... I probably would have zipped the jacket pocket... you know, not fastened the helmet or something else instead...



You think the new Sprint has addressed some of the "cheesy" issues you had with the previous version? I am very interested in the new Sprint and hope to have a chance to put a few miles on one... The new Daytona will get a close look from me as well. I would be curious as to how hard it would be to take the Sprints engine to the Daytona engines specs...



I'm thinking that I need to own 2 motorcycles in the not too distant future. I want to take the ZRX off the road for some "modifications" and don't want to have to hurry. If I don't get another motorcycle how could I get around?



See ya at Laguna?

I'm not bashing. I've owned a '90, '97, '99 and will no doubt own another. I bought a ZRX and the power has me a bit spoiled now.

When I was at the Long Beach show they had the Sprint behind the velvet ropes. Plus I don't think it had the hard bags attached and the bags were the part that drew the biggest criticism.



I'm still trying to figure out my Laguna plans. I'm leaving for Italy on the 13th of July. Plus, I lagged so badly on campground/hotel that if I want to go I'll probably have to stay in Santa Cruz at some fleabag for $250 a night. That cuts into the Italy funds quite a bit.

"Are Triumphs generally reliable?"



Never any problems with any of the Triumphs I've owned (or own now!).

We're camping at an off-track campground, may be room for another old bag (sleeping), might want to check with Sean. Since it's Cal, I'll have the smoking (snoring) tent of course. Knowing that area I'd be surprised if there wouldn't be some "unauthorized" camping going on.



You'll have to try and sell that "funds" thing somewhere else moneybags, as I recall it's still your turn on the next round!

2nd.



I've owned two Sprints, a buddy had a '00 SIII and I've never seen a real problem.

Ditto here, my '02 Trophy runs like a champ. 32k miles and no problems.

Just be sure to take all the adventure bikes over to Willow Springs and lean 'em over to see what grinds on the track, like with the Multistrada.



That'll provide real useful information for us & no doubt impress the ***** outa the manufacturers too.



I look forward to this review with "baited" breath.

Just wish they did better suspension on both bikes.
