My wife still wants a Gold Wing or Ultra Glide treatment on the pillion. Not happening for me.

I'm a bit underwhelmed by this new Speedmaster. Shorter wheelbase, smaller tank, a LOT less rake to the forks, less suspension travel...

Very nice, though, nonetheless. I trust Triumph knows what they're doing. They've been hitting home runs a lot lately.

This won't make me want to trade in either of my current Speedmasters, though. And that 2004 just keeps on going. Like a TIMEX never even thought about....

Nope, sorry, I just can't warm to it.
I've tried but all I see is a bobber with a dual seat.

I reserve judgement until I see it in person, but from the pictures I've seen I'd like it for a second bike to keep my Commander company in the garage.

Im trying to imagine my Beloveds response if I asked her to tour Scotland on the new Speedy ....whereas we happily did so on my TBA LT this year.
I'm afraid the new seats just look like they're a Triumph of styling over practicality.

I'm liking it.I would prefer twin shocks but,oh well.

There's always the touring seat available for the new speedmaster Al.

I pulled the trigger today and placed a deposit on the new 2018 Speedmaster. Phantom Black and Fusion White.
First one for my dealer but Triumph has pre-orders in the US for 28 already.
Expected delivery date is late February or early March

Going to be a long winter, but it gives me time to sell a few things and raise some capital.
