I've never owned a Triumph but wouldn't mind having one. Back in 1974 in Iowa City, Iowa I made the mistake of drag racing against a Triumph Bonneville on my Honda CB750. I wrongly assumed that young Bobby Fobian didn't stand a chance. Well, all I saw was his tail end pulling away the entire race. Embarrassed the heck out of me. Both bikes were bone stock. I though I had quite the bike up until that day. I came to believe that Honda had emasculated their 750s after the first year model and my year of bike, a 74' was nutless. I traded that bike in for a 1977 CB750F model which I still have sitting in a garage today with 33,000 miles on it and never wrecked. That bike served me well during my Marine years.
