It is that little "step" up before the mufflers that Triumph put in their new Bonnies that always irked me - the straight line pipes on that lovely Daytona 500 are The Way It Should Be
Agreed Mike. I've always thought there was something not quite right but you've put your finger on it. That and the tank. My 2001 has the classic Triumph tank, very sleek and classy. The tanks on the newer Triumphs are more bulbous and kind of porky IMO. Can't wait until this knee heals up and I can take my Turnip out for a ride again. Weather here has been terrific lately.
