Triumph as a stunt bike?

My managers boyfriend is selling his for like 3k..

I mean, it wouldn't matter if it's a triumph or a suzuki, right?

This prolly sounds dumb but I've never really heard anything about Triumph. :confused1

It does matter.

Don't do it.

Think about parts.

That's all.

Someone else with more time can explain.

i'll stunt anything with at least 1 wheel and a motor.. haha

but no that would not be a good stunt bike..

stick to the gsxr, cbr, 636, ... and thats about it.. i love yamis but not for stunting. and anything "out of the ordinary" is goign to be bad for stunting bc of the lack of "stunt" parts for it.

If it is a speed triple then sorry to burst peoples bubble but the Trump speed triple is probably naturally the best stunt bike possible due to its low end "manly" torque and short wheelbase. Wheelie schools all use speed triples to practice on!

And as for difficulty on finding parts - it's a myth my friend. You can buy anything for a Triumph these days. Ask Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited - he can order anything I need for mine. As for used parts that might be a little more tricky but just check out Ebay and see how much pulls up.

G/L

Oh for the record I know Fuc( all about stunting - I can't even pull wheelies but I do know a little about Triumph.

wheelie schools only teach you squid power wheelies! They dont teach you brake control or the use of body language......

For those interested The Houston Delinquents and OuterLimitz Freestyle will be giving a wheelie school may 5th at Honda of Houston from 6 to 10 pm.
