You assume too much, and you need to move it to the proper thread if you want to banter on. You may assume we can't wait to hear your POV there, but then maybe not. Only one way to find out.

Yeah yeah, I know I know, Ryk. Wrong forum for this kind of banter. You're right.

But hey, let's remember here that it was YOU who first made mention of guys with big egos...like ME!!!

(...but yeah, let's get back to how THESE NEW TRIUMPHS LOOK LIKE TRIUMPHS AND NOT HONDAS, and something the OP of this thread HAS SEEMED TO FINALLY FIGURE OUT!!!!)

I was at my local dealer today,Detroit Triumph in Utica Michigan. I went to check out the new models and believe you me I wasn't let down. They had several Street Twins,2 T120's,2 Thruxtons and two Thruxton R's. These are some mighty fine bikes!! I really think these bikes will do very well in the market. P.S. you have to look for the rad, it does not jump out at you at all.

. If you can wait a year or so, triumph will probably take care and build one for you, Ryk.

I talked to a dealer in Thailand about a week ago and he said[FWTW]in 2017 a 1,200cc Cruiser was coming.I don't know how much real information this guy had or if he was just blowing smoke because he knows I want one.

To me it's just a natural progression. It will give the America and SM a much needed shot in the arm.

The T120 is very much a rider's bike; it rides better than the sum of its parts. That motor...ah, that motor...is just great. And the bike handles super nice. On top of all that, it is very comfortable. I personally would prefer mag wheels, & could do without the steampunk throttle bodies, but hey, its a great bike.

I've ridden both the T120 & the Street Twin, back to back...& hands-down the T120 is the one I would get.

The salesman I spoke to thought they would be the 1200, but then he thought they were double overhead cam until I told him otherwise, still didn't believe me until he looked it up on his computer.
