Quote from: "durant"
I might be interested if it is relatively bullshit-free, though the hype so far doesn't give one a lot of hope.  The main attraction for me would be less weight than my Girly, and less oragami-Flash Gordon-aimed at the fifteen-year-old market design.  Beaks, needlessly goofy-looking headlights that look like Bill the Cat or an insect don't impress me.  Neither does folded plastic with zig-zag decals.  And Roadies look like they are grabbing their ankles while waiting for something to happen to them.  I wish that the general motorcycle market was directed in a less juvenile way.
Sorry to sound so cynical, and I do like my Tiger.



Durant, you took the words out of my mouth.  I'm quite interested but tiring of the BS and I agree on the styling although I've found that it doesn't bother me as much as it used to.  I'm getting old....

I'll see it at the NEC probably.  Rumour has it that the show will be better  this year as all the main maufacturers are pitching up.  I'm treading a fine line as the mate I'm taking hasn't had a bike for a long time and wants one.  His wife is all ready to blame me if he gets one and kill me if he hurts himself.

I was at my local dealers at the weekend and they have been assured by triumph UK that they will get an 800 XC in about a week before the NEC  8)

I asked in Webbs, Peterborough, today if they'd be getting one before the NEC show,  they said December and asked if I want to book a test ride.

Did Jesus wear sandals????  :roll:

I have to see it in the flesh, sit on it, maybe take it for a test drive.  I am comparing it to the Steamer, is it really that much better for me to part with the cash.

I think the proper term for when you get, ahem, distracted by such interesting internet matters and an hour or so goes by, without your noticing is a, "porn vortex".

Huh!  :icon_scratch  how did that happen? Must have converted some air miles into posts   :lol:

Maybe I got Brownie points for trying to sell everything to buy an XC  :wink:

Maybe just been talking a lot of Sh1te  :wink:
