    it's on my radar..
    will definately be taken for a test ride.

    posted elsewhere,
    i'm looking for a bike to wedge in between my long haul DR and my not so dirt capable, overpowered and underbraked harley.

    i like the old school looks.
    i'd like to see some luggage options for it start to appear as well..

    the option of the low 840 seat height version,
    still left with 200mm of travel and 110nm of torque with 16k service intervals, suits a lazy ass, short legged guy like me..
    i figure it's a bit off still, so i'm looking in all directions.

    If it is like the other new Triumphs, it’ll be too bloody small !

    A good condition second hand Wee-Strom would fit those criteria, it just wouldn’t have the fancy brand name.

    i've tried one and it just didn't fit me for some reason - my stupid short legs maybe - dunno
    and i wouldn't mind a touch more poke than it has.

    weird, as my mate who is 6foot plus and 110ish loves his.
    everyone says they're a good thing as well.

    yep, not too bad for a factory tank.

    i even saw it has cruise control.
    never felt the need for cruise control or have had it on a bike,
    but after coming back from PI GP this year to brisbane, and the police about, it might be a future necessary evil fo me..

    i know nothing about cruise control on bikes, but i'm guessing it could be used as a upper speed cap, not a steady cruise speed, - dunno..

    It will be interesting to see what the price will be here in Aus. Triumph Aus over the last couple of years have been upping the price on all their bikes. I would not be surprised if this bike will be $23k ride away.

    And at that price, their warehouses will be full and they will heavily discount them to move them on. I have already seen the new Tiger 1200's going for over $5K less than RRP

    Im looking for something just like this. I thought the Ducati desert sled looked good, (not useful, but good) and this looks better.

    I believe it is taller than the previous scrambler, which was too small for my 6'1" frame. I'd reckon these might not be that hard to sell.:*sip*

    Hopefully they are bigger frames.
    My mates old (8 year) Bonneville is a small bike.

    But, I was actually referring to the fuel tanks.

    The new Street twin has a 12 litre tank. That is just ridiculous.

    that sounds like a very long run on the oil
    for added engine life 5k sounds good
    oils are cheap

    wonder what oil they run ??

    dunno..
    my guess a full syn.
    an expensive full syn..

    it's a 6 speed, big lazy twin that torque peaks at 4000rpm.
    they probably don't expect it to be ridden hard at high revs.

    but as always i guess, clean oil is better than dirty oil.
    i'm also curious to see more of the bike's maintenance lists.

    dunno either

    as long as it does what ever before warranty end

    it doesn't harm warranty to change the oil/filter at 5k

    may just be a good proposition instead of another tall KTM ?
