Omaha, NE Triumph dealer which has been around for maybe 6 months. Breeze's Triumph. I don't care for the looks of any their cruizers but the 600 Speed 4 is a bike that I'd love to take out for a spin. I sat on it and it looks like it is all very top quality. I even think he said that Triumph was offering a $1000 rebate on them. Also, they have some 2000 cc moster cruiser inline 3 coming down the pike. That sounds interesting.
This is so great for Triumph! I can't wait to see the coverage tonight on Speed.
The only Triumphs I've ridden are the Speed Triple and the Adventure. The front brakes were so good on the Triple they scared me. Of course the only bikes I'd ridden up to then were metric cruisers and standards.
I hope the Daytona helps to keep Triumph going for a long time. With a success like the TT it looks like they're off to a good start.
I felt the same way about their cruisers, eg, but it didn't stop me from taking a demo ride. It didn't take long for me to get very happy on the back of one.
They're different that's for sure but I like them better than the Sportster. They're narrow, light, nice lean angle and a tank that seems to go on forever without making me lean to far forward to reach the grips. I really liked it.
What is it about the T-Bird/T-Bird Sport (or any of the triples in the classic line) you don't like? Not asking about the Bonneville line as I'm not a fan of them. I think the twin is a little lame. Too much fake stuff on 'em. I'm just curious what it is about the looks you don't like.
Way to go Triumph. It's nice to see a bike other than the Japanese foursome win something. I've been a big fan of Triumph since purchasing a 2000 Sprint ST. I now have 23,500 miles on it, and it's been stone reliable. I still get people that stop me at gas stations, etc. and tell me what a great looking bike it is.
Good showing, guys! They have has some pretty respectable showings in the BSB SuperSport series, and this win should give them the confidence boost.
I hear rumors that they may take on AMA SuperSport in 2004. From the early reports, the Daytona TT should be pretty evenly matched with the Japanese 600s in showroom stock form, so perhaps if they can find the right team, they can make a race of it.
Gotta give em credit for taking on the "Big 4" head on in their most competitive class. Nobody else has had the balls to do that (or is it that they are too business-smart to try that?).
Triumph teaches Harley a lesson in persistence and courage.
So much for those folks who said they couldn't compete with the big Four eh longride. By the way bout time you posted this i.e. I submitted it early yesterday. Leave it to the Brits to show Harley-Buell that it can be done. What is more amazing is that Triumph came back from nothing to do it. Triumph's hard work and courage should be admired by all. Triumph has a complete line of bikes unlike Harley's niche market (i.e. American white males over 40).
Arggg, always a critic. Yes I will try to bash Harleys more in the future. Actually, I have recently had a great ride on a Harley (If asked,I will deny it). But my contention is I rely on them heavily (not fair I guess) to carry the American Flag into SuperBike racing. We have no other company to carry the Flag into racing.
I realize Harley is a company. Companies exist to make money, not to make my American ego and self-esteem happy.
But I can dream.
Sorry if I bruised your Harley owner;s ego.
Polish up your peanut helmit and I am sure you will feel better. I always feel better when I condition my leathers.
Was this effort better?
