I would certainly be looking at the ignition system first, as others have said. Easiest way to quickly check for spark, unplug just one spark plug wire (from the spark plug, not from the coil), place the end near the cylinder head and crank the engine. If you see spark, you just eliminated that entire system, and you know you have a problem elsewhere. If you don't see spark, you have to narrow down where in that system the problem is. I'd bet you won't see spark. Judging from the immediate loss of ignition, a coil is your likely culprit.
Whoa now! Lets all just calm down before we say something we'll regret!
Seriously though, triumphs are sexy.. but I'll let a couple of my own pictures be my rebuttal:
