    I got a motorcycle.




    2000 Triumph TT 600. It was direct competition for that years Japanese sportbikes(600cc). Not quite the bikes they were, but a good try on Triumph's part. I got it tonight, been driving since 5pm eastern, and it's now 1:45 am. Trailed it home, returned the truck/trailer to friend that loaned it to me, came home and went for a quickie ride.

    Note: Helmet visors fog up something fierce in heavy fog, this is not terribly fun when riding a new bike at 60 mph on a curvey mountain road. Fog-X is in my future.

    I'm pretty stoked, always wanted a sportbike and now I have one. Next I'm going to get a toilet made of soild gold. Yeah baby, power dump.

    Oh.. my.. ****ing.. god.

    I love your bike, Brembo. How much was it? And the Triumph 600 isn't a bad bike at all.. zippy and fairly stable from what I could tell.

    I got it for a steal, 3k on the nose with all the stock parts, service records and such too. One owner and he took care of it. It's been down once, the fairings are aftermarket race bits and aftermarket signals. Sprockets are higher geared(turns like 5k at 80mph, redlines at 14k...do the math )

    Nice Ride Brembo.

    Have a bunch of fun and yeah, get that fog issue taken care of..
    Simply run adaware, spybot, ZoneAlarm, HijackThis, AVG, update windows daily, have a router, don't open e-mail, turn off action scripting, don't use P2P networks, don't violate EULAs, and wear a condom to get Windows secured.

    People say Linux is alot of work!

    nice find man... looks like it will flick quite nicely through the twisties!
    Every normal man must be tempted at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
    I often wonder if the voices in my head ever get frustrated because I'm just too damn lazy to climb that clock tower.
