    Not my sort of bike at all (scooter would be more practical around town) but what a choice of bikes we have now compared 1976 when I started road riding

    So true. When I started riding Triumph in 1968 you could get a 350, a 500, or a 650 in the USA.  There were twin carb and single carb variations. .  Likely the UK had a broader inventory

    I like it  :028: I don't want one, but bobbers are pretty popular around my area right now.

    When I came home on leave in the miitary in the late 60's a friend had a white Bonneville he was very proud of he had just bought and asked me to ride it and see what I thought.  When I lit the tire up on a hard shift to second gear( young and fearless at the time) , went to the end of the block turned around and brought it back, he said I couldn't ride it any more.  Still didn't compare to the Commando I bought in'69 that ruined the day for a Dodge 440 wedge after about a 3 block test.  I don't think he ever felt the same about his car.  :745:
    A bobber may appeal to some but me????? Uhhhh, no.
    Gotta sell where the bucks are though.

    I wonder if that will be a "prototype" that will be shown at the international motorcycle shows?  Manufactures do that frequently to judge interest.

    triumph has been testing the liquid cooled versions of their parallel twin motors... the new 1200 thruxton should be fun.... hopefully all the prototype stuff will stay on it... USD forks, dual front discs, radial brakes, nice rear shocks with external reservoirs... might have to get me one at that point
