Great article but I'm not liking his TT. As an attempt to get back to the spirit of the 68-70 Bonnie it fails big time. In fact what Meriden did with the OIF later in the export models looks far better.

Yeah, I agree, Nick. I don't really care for Vetter's designs, period. That Bonnie TT just looks...weird.

I like my bikes like I like my women: heavy and slow.

for what they are, i can appreciate Vetter's designs, especially the Hurricane (gorgeous, in my opinion). but as an attempt to regain Triumph's glory days, he went further away from the target than Triumph did. terrible.
