What a beautiful ride! I am sure the SO would not even let me test drive one.

Ride 'em if you got 'em.

Imagine the surprise on my face (especially with my 11-year-old daughter sitting right next to me) when I stumbled upon that site. Silly of me to assume that triumph.com would be a motorcycle site.

There was a motorcycle there? I didn't see it. Guess I'll have to go look again.

Nice ride. But I think only as a back up to the LT. Or maybe only during the really cold months.

Whew! You said a mouthful there. Even if I could afford to buy it, I'm dang certain I'm not rich enough to keep it.

I don't think you could afford the maintenance payments. And don't even ask what farkles cost for one of those beauties.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I'm pretty sure most, if not all, of them have to be purchased through Tiffany's.

Re: I think I want to buy a TRIUMPH!!!

I'd really like to know how many people looking for Triumph motorcycles actually hit that site by mistake? I'm wondering if the people at Triumph International really know that?

I donno, I looked and looked, and couldn't find anything about a motorcycle. I'll have to try it again.

Just Go

Re: I think I want to buy a TRIUMPH!!!

I think after 3-4 years, when you wanted to trade for a newer model, it might be expensive...

At least that's been my experience in the past...

Talking Re: I think I want to buy a TRIUMPH!!!

These triumph models are better leased or rented than purchased. And with many to choose from you can change to a new model anytime you want!
How convenient is that...?

Now, Now.. steady, boys...

You better check it out with your current stablemate before you go to grazing..

The grass may be greener (or have green eyes), but it will still choke your mower.
