I am a middle aged guy and my initial reaction I had when I used to think about Triumph Motorcycles was "Prince Of Darkness" aka Lucas Electronics...lol. Triumphs always handled good but were always unreliable. Well, now I'm the proud owner of a 2008 Triumph Rocket 3 Tourer and have nothing but praise for this motorcycle. What do you think??...Tell us your story of ownership...your relationship with your Triumph Motorcycle. We would love to hear it.
