A friend of mine had one for a couple of years. He always had old triumph and about 3 years ago bought that one in black. He loved it. It sounded so good.
He sold it early this year and it killed me to not be able to buy it from him.
Triumph been 're-realeasing' 1960's models that are modern mechanically more or less. they look pretty cool ( the scrambler especially) but the chrome looks alittle thin and so on. easy and fun to ride, but not real fast or nimble. be a good casual around town bike.
they are quite popular here.
Yeah, love the look of the scrambler.
the confederates a pretty decent indie bike ( quality is better than most of the little companies) but to damn ugly for my tastes.
plus, they are white power freaks. cant support the klan, man.
I know... thats whats fucking it up for me. I actually really like that look. From what Ive heard theyre pretty decent quality bikes too. I wish i could find somewhere that had them so i could see one in person though.
i have a 98 triumph thunderbird sport. it is by FAR my favorite bike i've owned. i love it, it backfires, it's fast (885 eventhough they say it's a 900) and it handles well. the only small complaint i have is that the seat gets a little uncomfortable after like 4 hours, but it's so fun i couldn't care less. i think these bikes retained their value rather well too!
so what it's a reissue with an american set-up?
yeah the scrambler looks awesome... I'm going to see about getting one of those (or something like it) up at our cabin when all the kids are older.
I've gotta get something here soon though. A bunch of people got their licenses a few weeks ago so I have to share the agency bikes with about 10 people now.
"be a good casual around town bike."
That's about all I need really for now.
