Yeah, one the one hand, it is cool to own a "Triumph", on the 
other hand, if it was not for JL I would have had a breakdown 
over the price and availability of parts.

No matter where I go, I will be able to get parts for the 
Yammer, not so for the Triumph.

As far as riding, lately, my riding has been ethter, 3,000 miles 
in 5 days, or commute to work. As far as kicking it up, I've got 
a 240 odd lbs dirt bike that gets my attention on the weekend.

YMMV, and hey, there are people that are perfectly happy with 
their HondaBago's
