Twins Talk Goes Automated

Due to the high volume of posts, the moderators (sic) of this forum have instituted an automated system TO SERVE YOU BETTER.

For service in British, press 1. Please wait.

For confirmation that the Triumph Twin you are sort of, kind of, thinking about maybe buying is the awesomest motorcycle ever, and to receive gratutitous disparaging remarks about any other motorcycle you may be foolishly comparing it to, press 2.

For helpful tips on how to bludgeon a seller of a Triumph Twin into submission, and pay less than the bike is worth, and far less than we all paid, press 3.

For an explanation of why your one of over 100,000 Hinckley Twins will be much more valuable, collectable and re-saleable if you leave it stock right down to the tank stickers and reflectors, press 4.

For a list of practical mods including sissy bar, enormous windscreen, King and Queen seat, steamer trunk sized saddle bags, and other applications, to transform your once attractive twin into a rolling hemorrhoid, press 5.

For a list of approved mods and the correct order of purchase and installation, that will allow you to sit at the cool kids' table, press 6.

For how to spend the equivalent of another brand new motorcycle to wring an extra 15% of power out of your Triumph twin, press 7.

For the definitive answer on carb vs EFI, synthetic oil vs dino, and the whole truth and nothing but the truth on which tire, pipe, sparkplug etc etc etc is the very best for your Triumph Twin, press search. No really, press search.

For all other inquiries related to the maintenance, care and feeding of your Triumph Twin, press Forchetto.

How long until this service is outsourced to India?

I am NOT pressing Forchetto. I won't do it.

If you press 1 for British, does the recording say, "Pip-pip, cheerio" at the end?

Brilliant. Don't get me involved though, the longer I stay on this forum the less I know. Three and a half years later I'm more confused than ever and still replying to the same questions with the same answers several times a day...

Perhaps the mods should gather up all your brilliant info and create a SUPER STICKY of Forchetto's favorite answers, and that will help free up some of your forum time. Just a thought...tomp

Keep it going!

To ask a randomly generated inane question, forever embarrassing yourself in front of everyone here, press 8.
