    Looks real nice Tony. Seems that you keep moving up in the cc's with the 4 strokers these days. I've seen some Tridents(90's models) here stateside with that setup. I would love to get my hands on a thunderbird sport to roll around on.

    enjoy,

    I think Truimph should have kept making the 4 cyl mills. I know the triples are their "thing", but I've always had a bit of a soft spot for their big torquey fours.

    It is a nice bike but it just doesn't feel rock and roll enough for you Tony.

    Well when you say it like that - not many more rock and roll things than a candy apple red Sherman tank, except maybe one with flames.

    Maybe it's too loud and you are too old?

    Maybe you need to lear to ride a 'real' bike
