The TBS is a superior motorcycle. It's only subtly different from the Thunderbird/Adventurer/Legend series, but whatever the cumulative effect of the differences makes, it is the best of breed.

No dis on the others; they're all good. It's just that there's something about the Sport that cannot be denied.

I feel the same way, the Sport was the one that drew me into the classic triples in the first place. Circumstances finally lent themselves to me getting a Sport, and I couldn't be happier. I also have a Sprint ST, so I know the difference between the Adventurer and something that's actually fast and handles. The TBS, to me, is the best of both worlds.

That bike's a beauty. I love the black with yellow, It looks awesome. If you ever find a D&D 3into3, jump on it. That would make it perfect.
(that, and green cams, pod filters, jetting, and a programmable ignition) :grin2:

"Green" cams are from Sprints, or Speed Triples?

I'm not entirely sure. I think they came out of 900 Trophy, 900 Sprint, and 900 Trident.

I ran red cams in my TBS that came out of a gen 1 Sprint 955. All gen 1 955 cams are the same, Sprint, Speed Triple, Daytona, and Tiger.

So, any of the 900s that weren't 'detuned", to be a cruiser. I'll keep my eyes open, thank you.

I think 3in3 is totally awsome but.. the 3in2+1 is just as ignorant, with the benefit of looking good in photos both left and right.

Lovely looking sport there, congrats!
