I'm assuming you meant Bikes in the title......................or a joke?

I would buy the Truimph but am partial to the style over the metrics.
Yamaha would be second if that is the one that looks like the Triumph.

OOPS!!!! OK...this is what happens when you are working and screwing around on the internet at the same time. Yes...I did mean "Bikes" ...."Bile" is what the project I am working on right now is causing to rise! ...;>) Oh well...at least I get to work from my home instead of a 8 X 8 cubicle!

Sorry must of misread I guess, I thought you said you like the triumph style over the metrics, Since a Triumph is a metric I got confused. :blink:

Triumphs are cool bikes, Bud of mine got a new America last year. He had all of us HD riders checking it out last fall. I even stopped by the dealer after to check all the bikes out. The speed master is really nice too. Although stock, it sounds like a sewing machine!

Sounds like the Triumph is the model of choice. I have no 1st OR 2nd hand knowledge of them so I have no reason to argue with any of those statements.

I do know 5 people with Honda Shadows and 4 people with Yamaha VStars though. Seems like all the Honda folks are thinking about what their NEXT bike will be - whereas the VStar folks seem to be pretty satisfied with their choice (they're not looking ahead to something else).
