Yes the Triumph Special was impressive but nothing will sell you on a TBird more than a test ride. As far as ergonomics go, I will tell you that when I first rode the bike it became evident that I needed my bars a little wider and farther back so I swapped the stock bars for the wide bars and that did the trick. The other bars(tt bars) dont change the original ergos much. Also adding floor boards and heel shifter helped me as well. I am 6'.Thanks for the input. Will be test riding within a week or two, already kicked the tires.
Main decision maker will be feel or ergonomics. How about the T-Bird/Rocket classes and/or overall Triumph reliability.
I viewed the Triumph special on HDnet network and was impressed.
