Hi Metal Bob
I'm assuming that you've never ridden therefore a BSA/Triumph Triple or more specifically a Hurricane ?
I suspect that if you had, you wouldn't need to ask the question .....
Just my opinion though of course .... :)
Started (legally) riding on my 17th birthday in 1977
These are the road bikes that I’ve owned since then (The ones in bold & italics, I still own. )
1971 BSA Bantam D14/4
1960 Triumph 3TA
1975 Triumph Trident T150V
1971 Norton Commando
1960 Triumph Tiger Cub
1956 Douglas Dragonfly
Thank you - it was one of the greatest adventures of my life (well so far !! ;)) and I like to think that I proved a lot of people wrong about just what a well set up triple can do.
Also, I have to say the W/J did everything that I asked of it during the IBR - 40 years on, the W/J is still...
