some more love for the 800 triple.

I still dig this bike in a huge way.

Well, It started out as a typical Sunday morning, coffee in hand, wife's laptop........in my lap.



To cut to the chase, I watched the vid and I had non consensual sex with my wifes laptop.


BOING!

I mean, the vid wasn't even that good, but the damn bike IS!!!!!!!!

Looks like Triumph really wants to play with the big boys. Augusts issue of Motorcyclist has an artical in it about an upcoming Singel from them. Looks like it is going to take on the CBR250R and Ninja 250. The atrical said they went from 13 models in '07 to 20 in '11 and more to come in the next two years.

On a side note, since we are talking British, Norton is looking at a "works" team in MotoGP in 2012. Nothing set in stone yet but a in house developed V4 is they way they are going. I doubt MotoGP would let them back in with a Rotory engine even if it is just a "Works" team.

Sorry for the hijack!
