Not sure it will have the weight to be comfortable doing interstate miles. Right Paul.
.




Well I have had 2 Tbirds since 2010 and have been spoiled w the highway ride especially w the Commander. I doubt if I would want to go back to a lighter bike for long distance touring.




I know what you mean....I also need a heavier bike....not sure why but they're just less stressed on long hard runs.....but for me I'd avoid the Thunderbird( everyone yawn at this point) .
In fact I'm test riding a Honda VTX 1800 tomorrow.

Same here, not big on heavy bikes...I think they will bring out another america style version but whether it gets the same name who knows...I think the speedmaster makes a better bobber than the bobber..

I'm just thinking Triumph probably did good sales wise releasing the Bobber first.I think the speedmaster sales will outstrip the bobber.I could be wrong.I remember I was once.

The 2018 Speedy looks like it addressed most of the issues I had with the Bobber. Looking forward to a test ride.

I stopped by my local dealer yesterday to get some parts and asked about the Speedmaster. I was told they probably wouldn't even get one unless they already had a buyer because the cruisers don't sell well

Sounds like a line of bull to me. I'm bet they sell every Speedmaster they get their hands on.
