With all due respect, BALDERDASH! Triumph only put a racing stripe on the far superior blue and white model because they knew it was faster. Better looking goes without saying.

Blue ?

Everytime I come accros a blue bike its going so slow that traffic is backed up behind it!

MyThunderbird in silver with black stripe is far more appealing to me and I am confident it will smoke any of the blue ones out there!

Here's fast - look quick or you'll miss it!

Ooops - guess I need to go back and figure out how to post pics! Or maybe it was so fast it disappeared already!

I've never bought into that. I'm a pretty sharp guy, I'd like to see one of the HD guys "explain" it. My guess is they can't.
