Having never been to the UK or Australia or New Zealand (places where I wouldn't mind going), the U.S. Marine Corps sent me to Vietnam, Bangledesh, Okinawa, and Korea for cultural awareness. Some US folks haven't been travelled out of the US.

Yet notwithstanding the strange views that we've drawn from the media, I can tell you that I've never met a Triumph rider that doesn't feel a kindship to your country. And, my T-100 serves daily as your best ambassador, being the most solid piece of design, engineering, handling, and pleasure that a country could want.

I can't speak for everyone here but by them being here, kind of speak for them selfs. We have a shared passion, that has created a sort of ken ship. If we could only get the rest of the world on board. When we need to put things into perspective, we all can just go for a ride on what ever bike we ride. It sure does wonders for me. IMHO anyway.

I wonder if a FAQ section would have any merit.
For example a listing of commonly-used abbreviations (TORS, WOT etc) may help some of the newcomers better understand what is being discussed.
Most of the answers can be found in the owners manual (with respect to capacities, tire pressures, etc), but others could be addressed with a well-placed link to previous discussions.
Maybe even a tutorial on using the Search function would enable some folks to either find their answers or at least refine their question to better enable some of the pros to answer their questions.
And lastly a metric to English conversion table (or link) might be useful to those of us wondering if 140km/hr is fast or slow.
I have been the fortunate beneficiary of a wealth of wisdom and advice from this forum and appreciate everyone's input.

I too agree that we need a Forchetto sticky.

Some good suggestions but by discovering the meaning of abbreviations is part of the fun. Once you know them, you become part of the "club". I'm always stumped by km/litre petrol consumption. I do know that 300 kph=186 mph 'cause that's where most hyperbikes electronically limit the top end.
