I like beefy front ends on a cruiser, USD forks and that Rocket horn would look cool.

the thunderbird 1700 with floorboards is a better bike than the road king, problem when one starts loading up on the acc's & that tbird price is as high as the RK but resale value (translate buyer confidence)is much lower for the bird. Every biker I ever met started out on a triumph because they were cheap & accepted. point is a lot of us still think of triumph as a poor mans harley. I'm a convert but tryin to talk to kids at work(the dumbasses that say "why didn't u get a harley?") is useless. I tell em I got 1 in my garage for sale all it needs is an engine. retards. Since triumph can't compete with HD's aftermarket it needs to make a bike that makes us forget about aftermarket.IMO the standard bird is great with it's tor's but the Storm needs to absolutely destroy anything "screamin eagle". that will get the younger bikers that are competing with their bud's. the dude's buyin' harleys to get laid. well, they are never gonna buy a triumph.

I wish they had a 240-250 rear on an 18" wheel, that would look sick! (Victory)
