Not the radical mods, I'm talking just the paint scheme. :cool:

Love the Italian way-how about those Zard pipes? These are the bikes they race in the Italian series for Triumph. Did you see the Speed Triple on the same site? WOW!

Yes I did...nice indeed. This bonnie almost speaks to me however. Never in the past have I been a fan of the cafe bikes, as I grow older they become more appealing...this one especially.

I guess I'm just not old enough yet. I just can't find any
beauty in a cafe bike. Again ,I say maybe on the track
going by at 120 mph they could look good.

I'll be waiting for road dog's little guys to give me a boot.

SCC, Not exactely a cafe bike, as it's configured for Supermotard racing. A combo of street and dirt racing also called Super TT. They usually look just like dirt bikes w/ street tires. That one looks more like a flat tracker to me, but way too pretty IMO.

Bill, Right on cue... :kck:


Hey, actually I did that on the nice bikes post, cause I felt like I got a kick in the crotch when you said you hated the cafe bikes. I wasn't trying to imply giving you the boot.

I didn't mean to give any one a boot in the crotch.
I thought you were giving me a boot in the crotch
because I don't like the looks of the cafe style bike.
I still think the scrambler is the ugliest make of the bonny
they make.
Bill

now I'll be waiting for the scrambler guy to give me a boot.

I'm sure that bike is a blast to ride but ***** is it Uuugly.
Just a poorly thought out color/graphics scheme. Are you sure they got enough stickers on it?.

Trim...bro...The Ducati you're thinking of is the Paul Smart Ducati, NOT the freakin, umm, metro Paul Smith crud. Totally different.
Well now that explain's it doesnt it.


I still like the bike, and would love the opportunity to ride it.


It look's like it's going 120 just sitting there.

Trim... that's a riot! :hihi: :roflmoa2: :hihi: Sweat... thanks for the clarification.

Could they be any more different?!? Paul Smart is da MAN of Ducati. Paul Smith, well I can't say anything nice about that fruit loop.

A super Motard with clip on handelbars?-no way Jose-that is a road racer for the Italian Triumph series. There is no way that bike is competitive in a
Super Motard format. They only run against other similarTriumphs like our Thruxton series here.

That is not a swishy boy in the photo, he is an Italian stud with Gel in his hair.

There is no accounting for taste. Everyone likes different stuff.
