Triumph Owners - This Forum is for you.
It's a great thing indeed... We could do with a little more variation than just V's, like you said. Oh, and bmw had (or has) an inline 4, but i guess that it's not the kind of bike the vog focus group would buySideshowBob said:It's great to see a "big twin" that isn't a Vee. Now if someone would just bring back the transverse mounted multis. But I guess an air-cooled inline 4 would be out of the question in the age of EPA.
In fact, if we try to take a step back, and detach ourselves from the cultural dominance a V-twin has in the cruiser world, he kinda makes a point hereIt's about time, Triumph. You've finally got it right! 1600cc, PARALLEL TWIN, great symmetry, awesome predicted power. I can hardly wait! I was never a big fan of V-twins. Basically, they all look like they suffered a serious birth defect. Then comes along the 2010 Triumph Thunderbird bringing sanity and hope to the cruising world. WELL DONE.
Seriously? For _taller_ riders? That's a surprise, considering how big the bike looks. I suppose you're talking about the pegs?Trekwolf164 said:The engine on the Rocket is large But it has standard controls making it uncomfortable for taller riders. Me anyway.
You weren't considering having forward controls on a Rocket, were you?I have an America and love the foward controls being stock.
Im sure Andy and eveyone else will agree, that although yes this is a Victory based site, we are all bike enthusiasts and like to see all types of bikes and mods for them. You never know when something you see on some other bike might inspire you to try something with your Vic, or whatever else you ride.rider_eu said:Psst, you forgot a category => Guzzi has some (classic) cruisers with a lot of Italian character and charm (Bellagio/California Classic). Human sized bikes...
But since most of the other categories have 0 replies, and this is after all a VOG forum, it's really not that important.
