This displays bias and ignorance which should not be present in a motorcycling community. I like all bikes.

I particularly like Triumphs and have since my first Bonny in 1969 but this does not preclude me from liking and seeing the merits of other brands. If I had to nominate one of the most fun bikes I have owned it woould have to ba Hodaka Combat Wombat, all 125 cc's of it but that does not make it a better or worse bike than any other make.The most enjoyable all purpose bike was a BMC R100Cs but I am not a fan of the new model BMs.

Triumphs are good bikes and you get what you pay for. Value is in the eye of the purchaser and to a lot of people $40-$50k is not a huge amount but to others it is a fortune.Triumphas are well priced and good value for money.

Enjoy the ride and appreciate the other brands out there becuase all bikes are good and remember a second class ride is better than a first class walk!
I feel compelled to bash harleys everytime I get a chance!

All the crap I had to deal with from harley riders over the years has made me bitter to the brand and anyone with the harley mentality!
