Being bored of japanese bikes I bought a new Triumph some years ago. My first bike with less than 1000ccm, but I fell in love with the 3-cylinder motor, the noice and especially my favourite colour.

I love Triumphs! There's nothing quite like the wail of those three cylinders at full tilt. My only wish is that they made something like the speed triple but a bit more practical for passengers and light touring. Of course, I'd take a Speedmaster too...

I just bought my 4th Triumph, a Tiger 1050, a great bike so far. The pic was taken in the Texas Hill Country, the video was taken with a small camera. The guy on the Speed Triple is a good friend and a great rider.

Yeah I would probably kill myself on that bike, looks plenty quick.

Nice ride.

I've loved all the Triumphs, but the Speed 4 was my least favorite I guess, it just didn't have that 3 cylinder growl, but it was a very competent bike. This is my first sport tourer and I'm loving it so far.

Agree. Had a hard choice between Sprint and SpeedTriple. Still I love the insane look of the SpeedTriple
Triumph is the first bike I have not concidered selling after 2-3 years. Think I will keep this as long as it lasts...

If my Valk gives up the ghost and there's no more out there, I'd take a serious look at that Triumph Rocket touring bike.

My lastest scooter, and it's really a scooter, a Schwinn Graduate 150. I bought it for around town stuff and it's been great, lots of underseat storage and it will do 55mph with my 6'2" 250lb frame on it. Here's a quick vid, I didnít move to England, the camera I used (I just velcroed it to my helmet) is the one I use for flying (FlyCamOne from H-L) and has a mirror lens so when I lay it flat it reverses the image and explains why it looks like I'm on the wrong side of the road, and yes, it will wheelie going up my driveway. I edited to 2:48 minutes.

Just went to Bike Night in Lansdale, PA this past Saturday. I've never seen that many bikes in one place before('course, I've never been, nor do I desire to go to Sturgis, Daytona, etc). This show was all about real bikes and real people. Plenty of Harleys and clones, but also a LOT of Japanese and Euro and Brit bikes of all persuasions. Most of the customs present were homebuilt(you can just tell somehow), and there were a lot of ratbikes. Even saw a few vintage Lambrettas and Cushmans.


Sadly, my own motorcycle is still languishing in its shelter. I did spend time diagnosing the problem over the weekend though. The left cylinder appears to be fuel starved, so I need to pull the carbs and look around to see if a jet's clogged or the floats hanging up, etc...

When I get a chance, I'll have to upload some pics from bike night here or start a new thread.

I've had everything from an old school RC30 to CR500RR but that was before kids. Probably going to get a couple motocrossers for my son and my self soon. Here's what we have now.

I've had a CT 110 for around 15 years, it will always be in the garage as the big bikes come and go.

I love my wide glide, but I have been getting a major urge for a new bike. I think I am going to have to get the new 2008 Kawasaki Concours 14. SWEET!

Hmmmm. That is a lot of plane stuff...

I owned a few bikes back in the day and have recently been bitten by the bug again. I'm struggling now with whether or not to lay out that cash for a bike or put it in to some new aircraft. I sure do miss the feeling of cruising the country roads and mountain parkways. Been looking at the Suzuki Boulevard and they have a great deal on an 07 Boulevard right now.

Here's my very heavily modified Suzuki SV650S. It won SV of the Month over on SVRider.com this past August.

I almost bit on the sport bike but I would kill myself for sure. I can't be trusted to keep it on the ground if you know what I mean. Been there, done that and have the fractures and scars to prove it.

Can't wait to get it in the garage and I still have to go down and get the bike ticket on my license. Probably have the daylight/non interstate permit till I get tuned in again. Been about 15 years since I did any real riding.
