I'm the happy owner of a Thruxton (along with six other bikes), and my only comment regarding the lack of power (along with the lack of apparent willingness to rev) is this: I've installed just two performance mods on my Thrux, those being a set of aftermarket shocks and the Triumph 'offroad' mufflers. The shocks are somewhat self-explanatory, as the OEM's are junk. But it was obvious to me that Triumph tuned this thing for the 'offroad' mufflers. Not only did it bump the dyno numbers significantly (to 68 rwhp and 52 lb-ft); but the thing now SLAMS into the 8100 RPM limitter in every gear (including top cog).

Fun bike indeed!

I had one for a short time, it was a kick in the butt. Unfortunatly it was a kick in the neck and a kick in the knees as well reminding me daily that I'm not a skinny 21 year old anymore. I sold the bike with heavy heart because it really was a blast to ride but it was much to small for my size body, for a smaller person it would be totally cool

Oh cripes.

And if you're doing it with a child under the age of 12, it's a felony, punishable by a minimum $5,000 fine and 3 years in prison.
I didn't notice that that jerk wants to make it a FELONY. For risky behavior? A FELONY? Is that what we've come to? How about 5 years in prison for taking your 10 year old skiing?

A know that the word 'fascist' gets used too much to mean anything any more, but if the shoe fits. The Bennett character is one vicious piece of work isn't he?

It's been predicted that if America ever became a fascist nation it would be with a smile and "for our own good". Those predictions were correct.

I wasn't going to waste my time e-mailing that c********r because I'm not in his district but now I'm gonna let him know just how unjust such cruel and unusual punishment is. I'll even contribute a few bucks to his opponent if he's running for re-election. F****** Nazi.

The Thruxton is the unsung hero of fun for "old schoolers". There are great suspension pieces out there. The Off-Rd pipes are great, but I believe Zard and Arrow sell something for them, too. I'd own one. No, not just because I used to work at a Triumph dealer. Because it's the type of bike I grew up on. Wish they'd bring back the Thruxton Cup. A buddy of mine, Ted Cobb, won the first title for the series. Cool bike.
