Yeah, stuff that - I'm built for comfort, not for speed.

A good dump before you go out would save you buying the Kevlar tank albino

Tolle, you're no fun at all.
When you are old, fat, bald and ugly, you need exotic toys to distract attention away from yourself.

It is more of the same but Thruxton R has a nice tank shape and ohlins so that would be interesting.
Put this over the boring honda retro and the barf R9T beard & tight pants machine.

The industry seams to lag a few years behind the media fads/trends. All the dudes were on choppers, then the MFG's made their "customs", now every one has a big trailie 2 wheeled SUV (Charlie/Ewan).

IMHO Now through the next few years will be the big bore naked standards.

1. The people who could afford the big trailies can't lift them and don't like the tall seat.
2. Many modern sportbikes have tons of "apps" and pushing over 160HP
3. Kids can't afford them and will stay home to play video games...

R9T suxx ass hard.
I am completely befuddled about why they made that hideous toad when they had the Rockster.
The Rockster was Sexy!

The magic antidote to being old, fat, bald and ugly is apparently a shitload of MONEY .......

I swapped a customized '09 Bonneville for the GRiSO last spring, mostly because I had gotten to the point where any additional farkle would ruin the looks and it had gotten boring.  The last blow driving me to trading it in after six years was a business trip to Portland, Oregon, where every other hipster and woman seemed to riding one.  I came home and rode the old Bonneville up to the MG dealership in Murphreesburo, Tennessee, and rode back on the new GRiSO without looking back.

About the only new Triumph classic twin I like is the basic Street Tracker, again because of all the customization possibilities and its clean look.  

I know that Triumph is trying to compete with both the new Norton and the new Ducati Scrambler.  But, in my humble opinion, they made a mistake in going bigger.  The really disruptive move would have been to go smaller and lighter, back to a 500cc twin that would have captured the hearts of the hipsters they seem so eager to capture.
