Triumph Gets No Respect
« on: February 15, 2016, 05:31:52 am »
A friend sent this to me this evening; saying he was concerned for me.  I wasn't amused.   :151:
He went on to suggest that I should keep my Goldwing.
My concern: There are no girls/women for the Triumph owner!   :110:



I'm glad I didn't choose the BMW.  Are they trying to insinuate that BMW owner's are gay?   :114:

No, it usually depends on which bike one owns. But somehow the wrong one got posted here.

Perhaps that image is 45 years old?
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

Well, over the years, I've owned a couple of Hondas, a couple of Harleys and three Triumphs.  I won't mention the Vespas and Lambrettas here, (Damn  :157: :157:)

In all that time I've not noticed and difference in company or panion occupance.  BUt I am over weight, 62 years old and have been married for 40 years.  Do you think that has something to do with it?  :745: :745:

I don't think there's anything wrong with a M5 BMW but a Honda Accord.
