The first Triumph I really put some miles on was this one:

Giddyupgirl and I rode a few thousand miles around the Alps, and the Isle of Man. Great bike, that Trophy III 900. After returning home, I purchased this:

The Centennial Edition (2002) Daytona 955i. I put on the Powermax, and a few other goodies. Unbelievable power. At Road America, the only bike to pass me was a GSXR1000. Top speed: 172 on the front straight (uphill!)

Fun only for short runs, and track days, I needed something more comfortable for commuting. Enter Tiger #1

I put some good miles on this one, and absolutely loved it. It did have a charging issue, so I traded it on on this one year ago:

Since it's got an unlimited mileage, 2yr warranty, I'm going to ride the crap out of this one. Only 15k miles this year, Alaska bound in '08!

I rode the Scrambler too, thinking I'd like one. I did like it, but it was a little low on power for my likes. Great bikes. I too love Triumphs!! Especially, those lovely triple engines...
