"What Would Steve McQueen Do"
When in any doubt, this is always the question I ask myself...
It seems to me that our tastes are formed fairly early in life - in our teens or earlier, into our early 20s - whether it's bikes, music, cars, or countless other things. We carry those tastes into later life....".
At one time, this was probably considered retro. Now, I'd say it's antique. How soon before future generations consider modern Triumph classics as antiques instead of retro classics?
I agree with previous posts. Seems that motorcycles built for speed are really only fun going fast. Our twins have it all, and hitting the ton feels like I've accomplished something. A crotch rocket is just getting into 3rd gear at that pace.
On the other end of the spectrum, my 2-stroke dirt bike is standing up on the back wheel in 3rd gear when I'm hitting the power band. Speed? probably about 30 mph at that point, but what a blast. Top speed=maybe 60 mph, and honestly more fun than even my Bonnie. Dirt is my true first love.
So let the Power Rangers brag all they want. I guarantee I'm having more fun than they are on any of my bikes. Odds are that at the end of any of my rides, I won't need a straw to eat my meals, or even worse, probably won't wake up pushin' daisies. Just my opinion of why I prefer my bikes.
