Got another e-mail from Triumph.

The idiots in the marketing dept. proclaim "The largest lineup in Triumph history"  Below the headline is a fine looking new Tiger 800-cast wheels, no beaker and the words Tiger 800XC.  Are you kidding me?  A multi-national corporation can't get it right?  Who is approving this stuff?  :shock:

Almost as bad as the XC promo shot of the two tall muscular, model dudes that look just like they came from a hollywood set.

Yeh - Not sure the 'models' fairly represent the 800 demographic. I'm 63 (NOT 6'3') and it aint what looks back at me in the mirror. The 800 / 800XC hicup...? Must have the 'models' also working advertising ? As long as the 800's perform well - I'll give 'em a "pass" on the ad stuff.

I think the average tiger rider just isn't into advertising, hype, models, lifestyle stuff, image.  If we were, we all have BMW's. :lol:
