    I'm so torn on this one! I've test ridden it twice and totally fell in love. I ride a 72 CB750 now, basically mint, with similar seats and bars so I'm used to the position and have taken mine on long trips happily, which I'd want to do with the Thrux. I've been considering adding something new to the arsenal and was convinced the T120 was for me, but it was a mighty pedestrian ride after this one. Smooth and lovely and versatile, but not quite as grin-inducing. Still, I wonder if long term I'd be happier with something more comfortable and passenger worthy. Thoughts?

    I chopped a Diavel in for one of these. fast…. very fast, but not in the Diavels (a missile!) league. However, it IS really nimble and great fun in the twisties, the controls are so light and intuitive. We'll see if the fit n finish stands up as well as the dukes. I've had two triumphs before and they were 'iffy' to say the least.

    how tall are you .? i m 5"8 .is this bike very tall for me??

  5. Ok, this guy is cool. I like his reviews! Very in-depth like instead of blasting paper facts he just gives an actual first person perspective from the bike. =) I love it.
    My question is: can it handle 2 passengers???
    Im going to purchase a bike soon and i love the Cafe Racer look more than the bobber or cruiser look, but they dont look like they are friendly to passengers.
    Any advice????

    Nice looking machine, though I agree on the reflector; gold forks should not be fiddled with! The radiator looks a bit naff too but the rest I definitely like.

  7. I have the strangest idea you're quite impressed with this one Phil, Good test ride and review, RSM8.

    There is a big difference in the pickup from a 500cc to a 1200cc.

    Gorgeous bike that, and with a few upgrades they can sound even better. However I love cafe racers, but a lot of their appeal to me is the personalisation, so I don't think I'd want to buy an off-the-shelf cafe as it were

    Why can't I have to money to add this to my garage :(

  13. Oh and next time I'm in a little one I'll take you up!

  14. Goggles on! Chocks away! Hooray!!
