Went to get tires this week and saw a couple 650ís at a shop. Sat on one, they ARE pretty tall. There was a gold one not bad looking for 7,000 bucks.

Reminds me of those (long ago) 650 Bonnies and BSAs the cool kids rode, while the rest of us made do with our humble Super Hawks and CB350s...

I had a 17 year old T110 that had more oil on it's outside and on the ground than it kept inside.

I've been having a good think about this....but the in the end I couldn't see why I'd pay £6k for a bike which doesn't seem to measure up against a tba in performance, comfort, handling...etc.
Am I missing something?

No I don't think you are Al.I think you're correct.

Agreed. And let's not forget RE's weak dealer network.

I disagree. What you're missing is "apples and oranges". If you look at what you are getting for the money in just quality, performance and reliability, then the Triumph (or any jap bike) is gonna win for sure. I have the same problem when I lust after the "Janus" I posted on here. For just a little more money, I could buy a rock solid Triumph Bonny. The Bonnie would be bigger, faster and probably more reliable. But you have to consider other factors, like "fun" and "different". I still occasionally go to the Janus website and lust after one. While it would make no sense economically or performance wise, I just know it would be a different kind of FUN! And THAT is why we sometimes buy the toys we buy. To be different and to have a different kind of fun! Just my two cents. (And I'm gonna take a day trip SOMETIME to Indiana just to look and test ride. And maybe....BUY!)
