Re: Triumph warning probably fell on deaf ears
Signs of the times. Back in that day, they wouldn't allow "The Wild Ones" to be shown on TV or even in theaters, because it was so terrifying and disturbing and violent. Today, even a blue-nose like me recognizes it as something you can enjoy with your kids as a "period piece", perfectly tame; I have friends I ride with that are crazier than "Chino", the supposed "psychotic gang leader".
Same with bikes. What were the old Triumphs, 40 - 50 horsepower at most? Today, that's a child's starter bike - a "real man" has a 175 HP KTM or BMW or Suzuki. Where's the warnings now?
We live in times when smart people are silenced so that stupid people won't be offended ...
Thank you for your support...
