Okay just for the fun of it I thought I'd do a triva quiz (can you tell I'm bored)

  1. Where was the press launch of the Daytona 600?
  2. What color schemes were available on the 2001 Thunderbird Sport?
  3. What does T3 mean?
  4. How many cc's was the first Speed Triple
  5. What was the original model lineup when the first Hinckley Triumph's were launched?
  6. What performance car has the same diamter pistons as the Rocket III?
  7. How do you know if you have the right amount of fork oil in your 2004 Sprint ST when refilling them?
  8. Why are the exhaust header pipes linked together on a 2000 speed triple?
  9. Why might bobshields55 have taken hairspray and dishwashing liquid into his workshop?
  10. Why do some members from northen climes use a product with a strange beach related name each year?
  11. What bit of fuel system plastic used to break on the 955 bikes - later fixed by a recall?
  12. Where does the term "cafe racer" come from?
  13. what slippery subject is likely to reappear on any and every motorcycle forum on a regular basis?
  14. when was the Daytona Deliberations forum created?
  15. Who are the "purple helmets"?
  16. Why are TriumphRAT members Archimedes and MickMaguire unable to "carry" in Vermont?

No prizes or anything - most (but not all) answers can be found on TriumphRAT

That answer is definitely incorrect, it's just a vicious rumour put out by that Hawaiian reprobate, er expatriate.

The correct answer oily ice or is it icey oil ?
