I kinda wanted to go have a look at the new Bobber once it arrives.
Probably when they decided to become a huge used bike dealer. Triumph has a certain image to uphold.

I went there to try out a tiger 800 when I was shopping around in Sept. and they where loading all the Triumphs onto trucks.When I inquired they said that they where not getting any support from Triumph and they where sick of it. So I went over to a Honda dealer and bought my Africa Twin. Glad I did.

Well, yeah, if I were a manufacturer I wouldn't want my products next to that big tent full of somewhat sketchy used bikes. Plus, triumph deserves a real dealership, not some hole in the wall in an area like Gorst.

Lots of low mile bikes in showroom shape sketchy? I've bought two bikes from stores Kevin managed BECAUSE He stocks clean low mile bikes.
They are the only real bike shop on the Peninsula the others are just showrooms waiting to rip off sailors with big credit.

In reply to the original question I am torn between the Victory Octane or Yamaha Cowl Stryker. Am waiting to see how the local Victory dealers handle the demise of the Victory brand.

The 2017 zx10RR looks amazing when you look into what they did to it. Also the 2017 z900 is similar to the fz09 if anyone likes the fz09 you should definitely check out the z900.

As with all kawi bikes I think the z900 looks really cool from the side. But head-on... Not so much. I do like the sitting in the bike not on it look to tho.

I'm not allowed to test ride one as it would likely result in me buying it.
