If the big4 can get so much mileage out of copying Harley, then there's no reason that Triumph can't try to profit from copying them.



And as a bonus you get a motorcycle whose name doesn't end in a vowel.

I'd buy one. I just wish it did numbers near the Japanese.

Do you readers realize that MO kept the Roadstar article up 2 weeks. What a rip off this online rag is getting to be. That means we get a couple of articles per month for our subscription monies. They have to perform better than this for my continued patronage. I complained about this earlier this morning on the Roadstar reader feedback and wham!, if they didn't finally slam up this latest article. They fill this rag with feedback to free submittals that they don't even have to pay for. Kind of lame.

will wonders never cease?

triumph with a competitive 600cc zinger? ducati with a MotoGP win? it appears the balance of power is swinging west ...

to the above poser complaining about test frequency ... web publishing is loads different from the monthly magazine biz, as i've found out the hard way myself. give MO some credit. they put quality content up and they scoop the pi$$ out of the print pubs.

In response to Electraglidder (read as a oil burning slow ass tired iron piece of ancient technology riding poser) we are lucky to have websites like this. My print mags are not nearly as intresting because I usually read it here first. Keep up the good work guys. And no I don't think Harleys suck, they blow: oil, transmissions, engines etc...

Stop whining about the measly $12. If you want to put that $12 to good use somewhere else, go ahead and do it. You're talking about $1.00 per month as if it's some significant amount of money. It's not!! Get over it.

Actually, the RoadStar was up 10 days, and in between then and now, we had three other stories (two ralles, one product review) up on the homepage.



So, for your 25 cents in the past week, you got four features.

??? Where do you get that from?



So, trusting that Triumph is printing a somewhat honest spec compared to the TT600, the Daytona makes about 4 more hp than the TT. The TT600 made about 90 horse back in the '01 MO comparo, when the R6 made 97. The R6 went up about three this year (and it's not actually the front runner in power, either) which would still put the Daytona down about 6 to the R6, which is a hell of a big gap in this class.



That six to eight extra pounds certainly doesn't help the Daytona either.

It is significant when you have to buy one quart of oil for your motorcycle every 300 miles.

Waaaah! Waaaah! Waaaah! Waaaah!

Dude.....the whining over $12 is not becoming of "Electraglider". For the size of it's crew, MO puts out big time. And we, the subscribers, get to exchange opinions rapidly when topics are brought up. Sure we tell each other how great motorcycles like the SV650, VFR, etc. are. And some people get to bag on Harleys or Ducatis, etc. and those things get old. I even get to promote singles and twins for those who will listen. But are you not willing to admit that this is cheap entertainment for twelve bucks? What does that translate to? A pitcher of beer (OK, two if you're in a college town), a pizza, movies for two, two six packs of imported beer, 12 lottery tickets, etc. I'll bet you get more mileage (a year's worth of entertainment) out of the MO subscription than anything else you can think of.

Now my beef: Where the f**k is the KTM 950 Adventure test and how did Cycle World beat you to it?!!!

Singles and Twins Forever!
