What's to think about with a discount like that. Sign on the dotted line. The Speedmaster looks great in Cranberry Red. Mine arrives on Monday. Matte black.

Mark - your Triumph Legend looks sweet in the Red. But, if I put it next to the Red Speedmaster, it's clear which one has more of the "cool factor". The red on the Speedmaster makes it look too much like all the other cruisiers, IMO, which is why I chose the only other color available - Black! I also didnt get the Red because my last motorcycle was Red and I needed to pick a different color so my wife could easily see why I spent $10K

I understand that my wife thinks all my bikes are exactly the same. That's why my speedy is Black with Tornado Red.

thanks for the motivation guys
Just so you know... most of the parts are made here in Thailand, shipped back to the UK and assembled there. But you shouldn't worry... the Thai children making the parts are really dedicated to their craft!

You do realize that about 95% of all cruisers out there are black, right?

Dedicated is fine, but the real advantage is that they were trained by Chinese children, who obviously have years of experience building bikes and cars.

Congrats on buying your bike. I'm sure that you'll enjoy it as much as the rest of us enjoy our Speedy's and Americas.
