Default No-show at the Cycle World IMS

Triumph didn't show at last year's cycle show in Chicago and looks like they're not on the list again this year. So what's up with that ?

it makes sense. i've heard rumors but it seems the rumors are more wishful thinking than anything else.

I am leery about responding to this in this fashion, but here goes. I only know of one guy who owns one. He raced it. It's legal in 600 supersport in some clubs. No problemo.



have you been on one? Not real comfortable standing still.

Haven't been on one, but I've read the seat is pretty tall. And I'm not.

Default Hey!

I used to own Harleys! And I do have cruiser. Not a "real" one. It's a V-4! Imagine that. I own a V-4 and the "V-4 rules the universe Kook" doesn't. But he knows more about them than I do apparently.



That makes me official GPTB... even though I don't have a ponytail. Founding member actually. I say that BrowningBAR is in as long as he supplies the ammunition to shoot out street lights.
