    I can't imagine owning anything but a Harley, but the power this thing generates must be awesome!

      I wouldn't ever buy one, unless Harley closed shop. But Triumph builds a looker.. even the sport bikes look good. I wouldn't mind test driving one of the cruisers..

          2300 cc (138 ci) along with the water cooling makes for a very large bike.

            That thing is huge....Does have a good look to it....but of course when every company copies the moco look the bike should look decent.

              My first motorcycle was a 1962 Triumph Thunderbird. Bought it brand shiny new in 1963 with the proceeds from working at R. J. Dionne and Son's Union 76 gas station. Mom almost crapped when I rode it home. Dad just smiled. Sold it to my BIL Gene when I went into the Service in 1966. He promptly crashed it. Sister Sandie still reminds me about that. I could do another British bike....

                    Wouldn't bother me what you rode.
                    It's not "derailed", as long as the last post relates to the post above it...it's just on a different rail, heading into a more interesting direction
