The bike is very light and nimble, but a little under powered for what I'm use to. However she clips along at 65 without straining.

Standing on the pegs the handle bar were just about right.....maybe about 0.5-1.0 inch riser for a guy over six feet. Under six feet it should be perfect.

I see this being a great geezer bike once the 650 class bikes become too hard to muscle around.
I know a pretty good place about 10 min. from my house to take her out and get dirty with her. I need to take the Husky out for a walk sometime soon anyhow...

I want a new Super Duke R !!!!!

Shit house mouse ! You can loft the front tire in second and third with just a twist of the throttle! You don't get on it, you get in it. The ultimate Hooligan Bike !

I thought about it, but I knew I would wake up the next day in full leathers, stumble to the shed to find one parked beside my Super Enduro and be broke as a joke with no punchline... WANT SO DAMN BAD

Back it out of a turn at 80 with the front wheel 6" off the pavement and all ugliness disappears.


Seen in person Jack, it is NOT ugly. Not even a little.

Because demented wasps from science fiction movies are bad@$$, that's why. If you didn't ride a triumph you'd know that.


BOOM!

Boom nothin.



You're right 6, but it's just less BUTTUGLY. I really don't like the look of most modern bikes. I just pick on KTM and BMW riders cuz their panties are prebunched from the factory.
