Nice Yammi! Glad you aren't bringing it stateside; I had a hard enough time keeping up with you on the Bonnie.

My 1982 Seca 750 had self cancelling turn signals. How hard can it be to make that standard? Nice looking bike Dog!

Looks like a worthy candidate for a sidecar.

Looks like it just rolled out of the showroom, with the optional beaver saddle. Original rubber?

Beaver saddle? Original rubber? Given this crowd, I can only see this going one way...

Hot bike... Always wanted one of those or a first gen CBR1000F... Couldn't find one tidy enough when I was in the market. There's easily another 27 years in that old bus.

This bike, even though 27 years old, is better than any Triumph because it has self cancelling blinkers.

That's it, I am basing my entire opinion on this fact.

If you dispute this finding, not the fact that it has self cancelling blinkers, but the fact that the bike is infinitely better than a Triumph you are: -
a, A fool.
b, Not in full control of your faculties.
c, Gay.
d, All of the above.

I will defend my current stance on the validity of the Triumph marque fully, using distortions, sarcasm, untruths, insults and any other means at my disposal.


Oh, and it pulls like a schoolboy, it is an absolute torque monster.
I printed this bit of tripe off and took it out to show Rosie.

There is now a small puddle of oil under the girl, her front disk is rusty and the battery is low.

You are absolutely a bike hound. Wonder what the 71 would say? Maybe she can't read.
