Bigger than my 350 Honda scrambler from the 70's.

Better?

Good looking ride. I wonder if the hand protection is standard (looks pretty substantial)? If so, it's nice that a manufacturer would include that rather than making the customer go to the aftermarket.

Better, don't know, Tim. But, I do have a Union Jack Flag on standby. 5146.gif I remember you telling me that everybody needs a K bike at least one time in their life. Checked that box, anymore advice? :grin:

I can kinda see that, (love tubeless tires) here's my draw to it.

 

1, the color on this particular bike

2, the tank shape

3, the rear fender

4, the high pipe

5, the swing arm

Yes.

You must pay particular attention to your riding gear when you get it.

The "correct" look only.

Nothing that takes away from the beautiful bike.

Something "proper".

Not sure what that is,

but easy to see when it isn't.

Kinda like the Supreme Court and porn

I'll know it when I see it.

Looks lke a lot of fun on many levels.

Put a deposit down,

now.

:wave:

I like it all! :grin::thumbsup:

 

If I could get back to the gym before I completely go to s..t, this may work with the Scrambler.

+1 I like the retro STD look motorcycle wave coming out and this bike really nailed the look of the decade between '65 - '75. Simple fun!

 

I really like that they are built on a modern chassis, motor, electronics, and suspension technology. Gawd knows the originals made mechanics out to their owners.

Just in case you grew bored of the retro theme, she's supplied with 96 HP & 83 Ft-lb of T. That's a pretty impressive power output right there! :thumbsup:

 

I'd probably run with the Silver Ice & Storm Grey. :Cool:

Adding my votes to the tally. Both very gorgeous machines. I bet these will be some of Triumph's best triumphs!

Are the seats more comfy than they look? A couple of inches of foam on a flat seat doesn't keep my bum happy for very long.

 

Seems like I need 1" of seat foam thickness for every 1 gallon of fuel tank capacity!

I'm going to say, probably not. :eek: An hour or two and I'd be done I think. But then again, this bike wouldn't be my choice as a transcontinental flyer. :)

I hear that about ones from that era, although I had a restored one of these in the 80's, it didn't leak that I remember but I didn't ride it much either, great to look at tho : ) I just remember it vibrated more than anything else I've ever ridden including an SR500, and XS650.

I would love to try that out on Ute Trail with some TKC 80's on it.
