Yep,,,,,, major "oops" indeed. You mean to tell me that Guzzi can figure out how to make a large tank yet Triumph had two chances to get it right and futzed up both times do to the cries of the Starbucks brigade "too much gas, too top heavy". Seriously, they didn't absoutly have to have 8-9gals but man at least 6-7gal woulda been OK. A 200 mile range on this sorta bike is stupid, stupid because Triumph could have easily engineered a gallon or two more. Looks and "top heavy" bitchers be damned dammit!!!!!!

Now if Guzzi and Tenere could see fit to add cruise now.
