I believe Gandalf the retarded makes it appear to the weak minded that both wheels are the same size....YMMV

Looks like the vertically challenged variant....Homologation special maybe?

BMW: Dude! Do you think you can just copy our bikes and throw in a triple and sell it for less and kick our asses?

Triumph: Yes. Yes we can.

BMW: That's really cold, dawg. Really cold.

Triumph: We know. Sorry man.

21/17 for the XC, 19/17 for the 800, I think.

Just unplug one of your spark plugs and it should run just like a Harley and send the right vibrations to the right parts.

I think that train left the station - HD's just are too common now to be cool. I'll stick with my Triumph Scrambler, thankyouverymuch.

Okay, no more spy pictures. The next one to get a picture of the 800, just hold onto it. Honor the release date.

Hi everybody!
I used to own a TDM 850, live a normal life, and think i was a complete human being.
And then i sold it
And in my quest for the new S10 info...that thread came along!
It is as it has chosen me, to enlighten me in ways i could not foresee..
I had in the past read AdvRider threads, silly trips always around the same planet ,deserts, Siberia blah,blah..
BUT
Gandalvs' bike?
Elves?
Fuel production?
Gases?
Redheads?
THIS THREAD HAS IT ALL

So i post here ,for my first time, feeling i have taken the blue pill into motorcycle true world..
I only hope the new Triumph accepts me in its generous arms, to be the humble follower..
I don't know if i will ever post again as it is not clear to me yet whether the Adventure's hardcore grace will allow me to waste time and effort for something else..
It is a privilege, i know..

P.S In a recent talk with my confession priest, he revealed to me that the Adventure's first official appearance was meant to be in the Monty Pythons movie about the quest of the Holy Grail.Last scene!
Those who have seen it know the movie was interrupted by brutal police intervention , trying to prevent mass hysteria worldwide(as a wise poster has previously said)
Cheers!
