Could it have been a Thunderbird you saw ?

It's amazing how small old bikes are. My old Ducati makes my Bonneville look like a Road King in comparison.

"If Triumph is going to do a cruiser then they had better figure out an engine configuration that works in the US market."

Hmmm.. I'm assuming you've never ridden a Tbird! Triumph has nailed the cruiser thing! The Tbird is nearly perfect!

I used to think there was no need for a 1600-1700cc bike in the triumph line. I too thought they needed a 1200cc speedy or America. That all changed when I moved from my speedy into a Tbird. Triumph knows what they are doing!!!

Yeah, but, the problem with the T-Bird is it weighs too much.....that's what kept me from buying one! The Meister

I agree. As a matter of fact, a huge dealer over in Honesdale, Pa. has a small exhibit area with bikes from the 70's. I look at them, and realize that with no doubt in my mind, that I wish they still made that style bike (with modern updates of course such as disc brakes)- smaller, with cleaner lines, and a sensible comfortable seat, and no plastic.
