    Oh my, I'm in love with another, and yes its a Harley, just look at this. Wowser, not seen a bad review, all I need now is a a bucket of money. A 300 mile test ride has been discussed for the spring. The panniers and fairing come off to make it look like a Fat Boy (ish). Never know my GMU may be on a fat blokes yanky doodle 1748cc barge. Most likely still be on good old Edna the awesome (see I'm embracing Americanisms already) Street Twin. Yee ha partners

    I blame the friggin weather, not ridden for weeks and weeks, spent a shit load on-line on bits I don’t need and keep dropping into motorbike dealers.

    p.s if you see the current Mrs Repooh, this bike is 5 grand ish, okay brothers. @Scampey don't even think of blackmail, I still have the pictures of you and Gary Glitter at his house party back in 80's, you know the one where you claim red wine gave you a bad bum, riiiiight

    Remember it is easier to seek forgiveness than get permission! And if she stills moans, ask if she'd prefer if you had one woman and several bikes or several women and one bike?

    Judd, you’re at the start of your romance, after 40 years I get nothing other than moaning

    im sure if I asked my wife the questions you suggest she would rather I buggered off, which sounds like a good plan to me

    Get a long test ride & see what you make of it Repooh?
    It may well be 1748cc but Harley employ specialist engineers.
    They are able to defy every engineering principle relating to the internal combustion engine & possibly physics itself?
    Their bikes seem to be the most efficient method known to man of turning fossil fuel into lots of noise, heat & very little else!

    Thank you chaps for your unbiased, informative views, many based on personal experience I’m sure

    i will test ride along with a Speedmaster which at £4,000 less is compelling

    as me dear old mum would say “ You dont know if You want a shit or a haircut”

    she was a poet

    Your symptoms suggest you either have a severe infection of some sort or possibly a chemical imbalance of the brain so a trip to your GP would seem in order before it becomes more serious

    Ok, Repooh. You posted a photo of a Harley-Davidson Sport Glide on a Triumph forum. And not just any Triumph forum. This one. ;) So the responding posts aren't that unexpected. :p

    However, I shall provide another point of view. Yeah, surprising, I know. :rolleyes: But perhaps a bit less, shall we say, charged with emotional bias (against Harleys). :joy::joy::joy:

    Your comment "i will test ride along with a Speedmaster which at £4,000 less is compelling" was the most rational and unbiased comment so far in this thread. And I have the utmost respect (even reverence?!) for those who have chimed in.

    Here's an alternate view. One of my three bikes has H-D's new M8 engine. I love it. I didn't want to but when I test rode it I just loved it. Sigh. A friend of mine has the very motorcycle you are considering. And he feckin' LOVES it. If you like I can connect the two of you and he can share his experience with the Sport Glide.

    That said, I'd bet that test riding both the H-D Sport Glide and the Triumph Speedmaster will make your decision for you. Can't really go wrong with the most direct and personal evidence available.:):cool:

    BTW, that photo of the Sport Glide is bee-yoo-tee-ful! Happy "hunting" and test riding. Let us know what you decide, Repooh.

    Nice RePooh, I liked riding the Fatboy 1476 and recently the Fatbob, but haven’t ridden the new Milwaukee 8 107.
    I love my Speedmaster 1200, so wish you well on your test rides.

    SandiT for Prime Minister, see gentleman this is a balanced, considered response, informative, fact-filled and with a dash of love and compassion.

    None of that testosterone filled HD are shite rhetoric based on my mate Barry having a HD twenty years ago.

    And to prove the modern HD is a good bike, if each forum member could send me £5, I’ll buy one for research purposes just to be sure.

    Have a nice day (see another former colony tag line)

    You’re not wrong Littleade, I even found myself whilst listening to Corbins manifesto launch, thinking “that makes sense” WTF I am a lifelong wannabe middle class social climber who works hard at looking down on the lower classes. This is no ordinary man-flu I have
