    "ozone at the speed of dark"
    "handy smoke screens for cool ninja moves"

    They could also steal Royal Enfield's marketing motto: "We turn ordinary men into mechanics".

    YOU obviously don't own a Triumph so maybe you shouldn't make assumptions!!!:asshat

    My 2008 Triumph Daytona 675 has 14,500 miles on it and doesn't leak oil and vibrate and runs like a top. <---- the vibs and leaking are probably your worn out sex toy. :lol3

    lol. If you knew Mista Vern you'd know his tongue is stuck firmly to the inside of his cheek at that point. He's a big enough fan of the Trumpys.

    They chose to go with the windup giggler spring instead.

    Works great going downhill when out of petrol.

    Gentlemen, I just heard the most exciting news about the new tiger. It will have microtextile stretched titanium and diamond sailcloth instead of bodywork.
    That way, if needed, one could hollow out an old growth hardwood tree trunk (just cut the tree down with the chain..no shafty for sure), dismantle the "bodywork" (wink wink), stretch the sail across the extra tall mirror stalks, use the ipe wood, single sided swingarm as the center mast, dip the front wheel, which is a revolutionary deep dish dihedral polygon specifically made to function as a rudder, in the water, lift the union jack (or jolly roger for our pirate types) and set sail.

    this bike is hardcore. nothing can stop it. it will never leave you stranded. that is why I am looking at it, because I am so hardcore.

    those guys.... they really get the market.

    BTW Buell is going to lease the front wheel rights for his next project.

    Sense of humor. Get one. :deal

    If you read further you'd have seen that I was being ironic and in fact, ride a Triumph Scrambler and also that I noted that of all the 40+ motorcycles I've owned, I think it's the funnest, all-round bike of them all. :D

    But we digress - time to get back to the many "breaking news" posts in this thread and learn all we can about this splended new offering from our friends at Triumph! :clap

    Breaking news: I just heard that the Victorionox, the company that makes Swiss army knives, has come up with a new slogan: "Our products are almost as useful as the Triumph Tiger 800"

    Stay tuned for updates. Film at 11:00.
