I bought a TBird... and I'm very happy with it... here is my short story.
When the Triumph test ride truck came around I had my bird for about a year. I rode the Bonnie and Thruxston and loved them both. I'll own one or the other soon... Then I considered trading the bird for a rocket... I tested the dresser version... smooth as silk and very comfortable for the long rides... The tested the sport model... now that was truly a ROCKET...
Now my decision was this... if my wife was an avid traveler like myself then the dresser would be sitting in my driveway as I speak... but the sport model was way to much bike for me... I am still young enough to like to roll the throttle on... Now if I lived in Europe with the Autobahn.... then maybe... Call me a light weight if you want to... I like my TBird
