Long-Term Evaluation: Triumph 900

Terribly distressed, a young begins to bellow something the door of a bar I was sitting in: There’s a big motorcycle wreck out here! Is a bad joke, I wonder, as she continues: We find the rider, he must be up in a or something! Vaulting off the barstool and outside, I spyed a terrible of smashed motorcycle in the front of the house next door.

It was my 1988 BMW K75S. I had parked it out on the rear wheel to the curb in the manner, and some brain-… had smashed into it and taken From the looks of the bike, it have been a cement

Police reports and insurance were dutifully filed, and still in mourning over the of my faithful, steady and forgiving I began the search for a new bike.

I gravitated toward BMW’s, ridden them with results for nearly 20 years. My bike of their line, the is in its last year of production, and been updated one whit its introduction in 1985. The open-class have had a thorough facelift and it was those that interested me.

The price of the machine took my away unfortunately, especially it cannot be bought without worth of stuff that I desire nor need, ABS brakes and the heavy catalyst exhaust

The price of an R1100R is somewhat to reality, but it has just about as appeal to me as socks do to a turkey. No that it’s a well-engineered but in my eyes, it’s a sheep in clothing. With BMWs I shopped around and test-rode motorcycles, all of which were

There are simply no bad bikes on the today.

I managed a ride on a Triple at a recently reestablished dealer here in Denver. the riding position left to be desired (the handlebars far too close to the front axle for my the feel of the engine hooked me. I noticed that the Sprint had the handlebars on top of the triple clamp, a little fairing, and was 500 bucks than the Speed Triple, I the bait.

The engine is simply magnificent.

much arm-waving and paperwork, I delivery of a 1995 Triumph 900, in Candy Apple Red, on the of Tuesday, June 6th. It was a day, and I thought to take a through the foothills and get used to new machine. I made it seven from the dealer before the expired. No combination of fiddling the petcock, kill button, or would cause it to start

A phone call to the dealer the most sincere of apologies, and a man in a pickup truck. We carefully the bike, and he dropped me off at my house.

I got the Triumph back on Friday The ignition pickup had picked up a of infant mortality (a well-known of electrical stuff). Also, they removed the fuel to work on it, they discovered the petcock would not shut and they replaced it as well a silly vacuum-operated thing on most Japanese bikes).

We had a parking-lot party on Saturday in of Motorcycle Parts Center, to the debut of my 1937 BMW R12, but it was that stands out in my mind it was the day I first rode my new pride and I’m a member of a rather group of hooligan sportbike

I only ride with occasionally (mostly because start out at 7:30 a.m. on but I thought that a Sunday scofflaw canyon-twisty session be an excellent way to wring out the new Triumph. In of having to use 5000 rpm as a break-in I was mostly able to keep up them, and I gathered several about the machine.

Triumph Sprint 900

First of all, it’s a ride. The Sprint is a big, motorcycle, that is easily around via fairly wide and handlebars. The seat tends to the rider into the rear of the a bit, but it both conforms and well.

The engine is simply Even at the modest break-in I always had good pull out of and plenty of power to get around the which are the bane of a sportbike life in Colorado. It’s tractable, and pleasant, and has enough snot to satisfy all but the most horsepower junkie.

I detected no faults other than the feels a little clumsy at low It requires moderate effort to get the bike into the proper then it tracks around very rough corners it was on rails. The steering is very partially due to the excellent Bridgestone tires.

The engine is relaxed and the bike is stable at all speeds, so unless one noticing that the stripes on the look more like you’re likely to be doubling the limit.

The 200 mph speedometer is completely The bike won’t go anywhere that fast, and the wide makes the graduations so close that the needle is 5 mph wide. of the problem, though, is that the is deceptively fast: The engine is and the bike is supremely stable at all so unless one starts noticing the stripes on the road look like dots, you’re to be doubling the speed limit.

I have a few other nits to The indicator lights are too dim to be seen in The handlebar grips are uncomfortable, and waffle-iron marks on the palms. The rear suspension settings are too

And the fuel tank vent wierdly when the bike is in the sun.

But, on the whole, I I’m going to like bike.
