Friends, I am not writing because of their demise. No, that came as no surprise and brought me no joy. Rather, I am writing to thank you, one and all, for keeping a positive attitude; one that flowed like a sparking stream of inspiration and faith through a forest of uncertainty. One that proved we can all hold our head high knowing we took the high road.

Thank you. Thank you, indeed.

And now, back to discussing the marvelous, the fabulous, the best motorcycle ever: the new Triumph Tiger 800 DS!
Just got home and read thru the "other thread" posts for today. I just don't understand why.... All we really need is love ... for the greatest thing since sliced bread, the magnificent Tiger 800!

Those are shots of a decoy. The real bike uses a cloaking device built on the exotic don'tshitonthisthreadwithfacts principle.

Yeah, I guess so. The good thing about being chronologically gifted is that I have seen the evolution of bikes from the most basic leaking, wire-loom-burning Brit bikes and leaking, break-your-leg-kick starting HDs to the most sublime motor bike ever created: the new Triumph Tiger 800 DS!

As per inside sources, riding the new Tiger 800 will not only make your teeth whiter and brighten your smile, but it will also actually improve your entire personality....

I've only ever seen the TW200. The Tiger will need to fed one once a week or it will grow angry!

I've been reading the HARDCORE thread, and I think you're all a bunch of sissies.
