    Engine sound would have been nice…

    • Brett Lewis

      …as always…

    • Corey Cook

      Let’s be honest, that inline twin is not a good sounding engine. We’re/ you’re not really missing anything here…

      • Jesse Perry

        I must be in the minority that thinks that a Trump inline twin sounds great when uncorked.

        • southsixth

          Nope. Far from a minority. Some people were just raised with the shriek of a inline four. A properly breathing brit-twin sounds like a goddamned WWII fighter plane making a low pass.

            Parallel twins rock!

  • Damo Von Maciel

    Let me add: engine noise would have been nice, ESPECIALLY without the 1990′s faux Pennywise bro-pop punk.

    • Jesse Perry

      Props for the Pennywise reference.

      Face to Face isn’t faux bro punk. It’s the authentic article!

      • Damo Von Maciel

        I just don’t care to much for any of the early 90′s positive message west coast bro punk. I guess being a miserable New Englander will do that to you.

        I should have worded it “bro faux punk”.

        • stever

          “what is punk, mannnnnnnn” b/w “you’re not punk, and I’m telling everyone.”

          • Damo Von Maciel

            I agree with you on that. What is punk (or heavy metal, for that matter) truly depends on who you ask.,,,and their all wrong.

    This is immeasurably cooler than dressing like a rocker and meeting up with the boys for a pint (of Pabst if possible).

    The Thruxton Cup Transatlantic Challenge isn’t limited to Thruxtons. Triumph Bonneville, Harley XL 883 and XL 1200 Sportster models are also encouraged in the class. Strangely, the XR1200 isn’t.

    Had my thrux on the track last year and it was a blast. I’m hoping I can get down to the NJ thux cup race in Aug. This looks like so much fun.
