In 40 years when Triumph re-reintroduces the Bonneville, I'll get to be the creepy old Triumph guy (a.k.a., HAP).

Wow, this guy could have had disc brakes during the War of 1812?

I guess we're all posers compared to that guy. He was into Triumphs before they even existed!

I'm not seeing much 1812 commemorative-ish-ness in that bike, but I'll take his word for it.

That's true mm, however he couldn't order them until ebay was started in 1995 so he stuck with drums.

He probably found out that Americans don't really want to be reminded of the War of 1812.

Hey, we got a refabbed White House out of the war, so that was good.

And let's not forget Rear Admiral Cockburn.

Hehehe...Rear...Cockburn...
