Triumphs are rubbish, got me a real bike...

What better place to show off my new (27 year old) Yamahahaha!

Awesome!




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.

/discuss





Oh, and it pulls like a schoolboy, it is an absolute torque monster.

Does it really say "Fun Girl" on the side?

It says "Fear God", I am hoping the guy who put it there was dyslexic and actually wanted it to say "Fear Dog".
Or i might get a sharpie and change it to "Fear ME God!".

I've never had a bike with self cancelling blinkers. I think they are just broked and can't stay on....

I had something to add ..... But there is no beating the self canceling signals .

P.S. " pulls like a schoolboy " sounds like something a predator would say .

Just saying .

Yes, the lights work... unlike on a Triumph where it is a matter of the moon being in Uranus and banging said light with a screwdriver in hopeful anticipation. (it never worked)
