I agree. I continually get compliments on my R1100s. Gets far more comments than my GS which gets none complements. None.

Triumph, any triumph. I rode my Trophy 3 for the first time today. I want a Street Triple, I want a Bonneville, I want a Thruxton, I want a Scrambler. I love that marque!

I'm guessing that you got the silver bike with the black frame and painted the tank and plastics? I've always thought they were lookers, but damn! Yours is a stunner. Where did you procure that belly fairing?

That said I would be ALL OVER the Freeway if it transitions from vaporware to reality.

I've always thought these were great, beefy looking bikes. Just very tough looking. Love it.

By mine, I meant my "bike I want today." That's just a pic I found on Google.

Hmmm... No offense intended, and while I do agree with the sentiment in part, I'd say that those "douchebags" build what sells in today's market. They tried it with Buell and unfortunately the numbers just weren't there. We are just stuck with a market that is dominated by cruisers, and H-D's marketing folks are just responding to that market. And they do a damn fine job of sustaining that market trend too. I'd think that if market demand changed, then H-D would start following whatever was in demand. But for now, they are continuing to sell to the masses..

As for the MT-01. How many did Yamaha sell?

I do agree though, that it would make a very fun bike to ride on the street in the real world.

This one looks particularly enticing! Even if it is missing a few things...
