I once picked up a Rider magazine only to find myself inside of it! I was riding over to Ballard one day and remember thinking “why is this guy photographing me?”
The article was on riding in downtown Seattle, I think. This must have been in about 1998.
I loved this bike! It was the first sport bike I ever sat on that seemed to fit…most are designed for 5’6″ guys who weigh 125 lbs. The Triumph was definitely not for them, shorter friends had a hard time even getting their feet to the ground. Moreover, it was top-heavy, especially with a full tank of gas, and it was very hefty for a sport bike, 500 lbs all-up.
