Not that anybody on here does that.
That sounds about as clever as painting a bike with a Spiderman theme....

My motorcycle says "I'm a n00b"



Still loads of fun even with only 250cc single cylinder 4 stroke.

250

That's actually a beautiful little bike and absolutely nothing wrong with noobiousness. Don't bob the tail especially on that one as the factory has done a nice job on styling. Ride sensibly most of the time flip that thing in the corners. It's looks like a gas.

i'd take a 250 over a superbike any day of the week

bmw f800r, sachs madass 125 and yamaha xs 400 se in my little garage.

basically says that i won't pay premium to go above 98hp (thats the magic bar in germany above which you have to pay a shitload to insure) and that i enjoy something a little unique.
and that i'm way too cool for inline 4s.

I Ride: 2010 Triumph Speed Triple and 2015 Triumph Rocket X
Two Triumphs

Ladies and Gents, I present to you my two Trumpets. I would like to think my choice in motorcycles says I am an eclectic character. Or maybe even stylish, like an aging hipster. I have been accused of being a bit of an Anglophile before (by a Brit, no less). But I am sure some wiseass can come up with a demeaning explanantion for my choice in motorcycles.

Honestly, I just really like Triumphs. My Speed Triple has been the most fun I have had on two wheels with my limited sport riding skills (I hope to start doing track days next year!). But I like other motorcycles, as well. I guess I tend to prefer the European bikes, as I have owned an Aprilia in the past and have lusted over several Ducatis and Moto Guzzis. I have also owned a few Harleys, and my current pair of Triumphs are not my first, as I once owned (and deeply regret trading in) a Triumph Daytona 1200.

My first sportbike was a Honda CBR600 (bought new in 1998). I had been riding Harleys for a few years and wanted to know what the sportbike thing was all about (and I had been watching racing on TV so that itch was there). I believe that choice said "I am a Harley guy and don't know anything about fast motorcycles so I am going to make a safe choice; Honda".

Anyways, I do love my Trumpets!
