Wow, that looks sweet! BTW am I seeing things or are there Fins on the Baseline?


Talk about a "bucket of worms"! Are you trying to get Dwight stirred up again?! Haven't you ever heard the one about "sleeping dogs"?!




Zzzzzzzzzz .....Zzzzzzzzzzz .....Zzzzz ....HUH?! Did I hear the word "FINS" ???

Nah, don't worry. I won't go there...THIS time, anyway!

However, what I'd like to know about is...that tank badge?! What's with the "eyebrow" tank badge on that black T-Bird above??? And I ask this because on every other pic I've seen of the T-Bird so far it has a rather "anemic-lookin'" little oval badge on the tank that doesn't exactly "proudly say" that this new machine is a Triumph!!!

And so, was the "eyebrow" tank badge photoshoped by somebody, OR...will the T-Bird actually come with a tank badge that PROUDLY displays its name AND "heritage", such as this pic shows?????

(and BTW...yeah, those ARE "fins" you see on those cylinder barrels alright, Angel....itty-bitty ones that are STILL too "itty-bitty" in contrast to those finned cylinder heads.....but like I said, I won't go there.......much)

Man, I hope that badge is there to stay, the tiny one has none of that Triumph feel to it! No soul at all!

Yep, Dave. One would HOPE those fellas who "forgot" those "fins" would have AT LEAST figured out that a tank badge which(as I mentioned above) "proudly" says "TRIUMPH" across it would be a good idea...wouldn't one???!!!

I can only imagine what these things are gonna do when they get all hopped up, putting 130+ hp to the ground, the stock power numbers are probably pretty restricted for emissions.

Hmm.. From this angle it looks quite like an America apart from the rear fender.

Yeah, from that angle you can hardly see the radiator and the lack of fins is less noticeable. Do you have that picture in high resolution so Dwight can put it on his computer desktop?

Except for a few easy changes, that bike looks really cool. I'm interested too, Dave, to see what kind of numbers this thing can get with some performance mods.

All that bike needs is different turn signals and a side mount bracket for the license plate. Clean up that tail.

Oh, it also needs my butt in the saddle...
