What a freaking wanker.

Yeah, I call total BS on 55mpg. My 05 gets maybe 34 when I ride mellow. What is he measuring MPG when he is coasting downhill?

I found out who bought/stole the sign from our old Triumph dealer.

Triumph Motorcycle Dealer Sign - $350

Triumph motorcycle dealership sign that measures 4 feet tall by 10 feet long. This sign is the sign face/lens and does not include the lighted housing, but could still easily be back lit for a killer motorcycle man cave effect. Can be reached at 205-702-4022 Tuesday through Saturday or 205-999-1166 most days.

Yes that'd be $350 well spent. You could mount it in the front yard and say to new friends whom you've invited for a barbie;

"Ahh ya won't miss it, there's a Triumph sign out the front. I'll turn it on for you".

I guess Dog was wrong, then. A cafe bike can be...a bike.

That word may just be printed there to remind the rider (the Cafe Racer) what his destination was. Tea was very strong in post war England and had detrimental effects on your short term memory.

Imagine, someone looked at this and thought it looked good. Then, someone else looked at it, liked the looks and decided to buy it. I guess there really is a sucker born every minute.

^ In the spirit of trying to find something good in everything, I'll say I like the front turn signal indicators.
