We saw this at a restaurant a few weeks ago. In case you can't recognize it (I didn't), it's a Triumph Tiger.

I dig Triumphs; came very close to buying a Speed Triple when I was shopping for my ZRX but went with the Kaw because it had more power and (frankly) was likely to be more reliable....

I don't think reliability is much of a problem with Triumphs nowadays - better than BMW, reputedly.

There were some Triumphs on their web page I could be tempted with. The Tiger was not one of them!

The Bonneville T100, for example.

Of course I could by a Kawasaki W650 and get all the styling and twice the dependability.

That W650 was a nice piece; dead ringer for an old classic - but as you say, more reliable.

Too bad it died due to lack of interest.
