Thunderbird Pics

This is the thread to show off pictures of your Thunderbird! Have fun!

Moderator Note

Please post your pics into the relevant threads. Please do not post over-enlarged pics that extend the screen size, this is annoying to viewers.

Note: comments and questions/answers are invited but such comments will be deleted after one month to prevent the cluttering up of the picture threads.

Any bike that creates an interest with a number of questions & answers that are worth keeping can be saved and moved by the moderators as a new thread into the main forum.

Managed to test ride one!

There is 1 - and I repeat ONE Thunderbird in Switzerland as of yesterday morning - and that is at Moto91 in Höri, Zürich!

I'm sure there'll be more in the next days/weeks to come for demo purposes.

But the fact is the Thunderbird wont be available for sale until September 2009 due to the fact that Switzerland will ONLY supply the ABS version!

But the one I could test ride was a non-ABS and still, it was sexy enough for me to place an order!

Here's the pics I took:

I don't have an ABS model, but I do have a pic of the ABS ring, which I'm assuming you are asking about.

I like the idea of white walls... Black forks would add contrast too!
And what about a bit off a Speed Triple Twin head lights?

Hope you guys don't mind Thatch & Engage - but I've tried some modifications with your original pictures...
