Don't take this the wrong way, but what did you expect? I mean, this IS the Internet...

You know,

My dad is smart and an engineer.

but the endless stream of misinformed crap that he spews drives me absolutely batshit.

Time didn't stop in the '40s and '50s when they got their education. They just think it did.

Do your own research.

You came on here and made a blanket statement with nothing to back it up other than what your dad told you. If you had posted this on any of the Triumph forums, you would have already have had your ass handed to you. Be happy that barf is such a nice friendly site.

By the way, my failure of a triple has done over 16K miles in 7 months without even a valve adjustment. I don't know what I was thinking buying such an unreliable bike. Next time I'll definitely go buy a cookie cutter inline 4 like everyone else, they never have problems.

I think this thread is too funny.

squirrls- for someone 'claiming' to be asking a genuine question, you sure get your panties in a bunch too quickly.

Perhaps it would be easier if you got your dad to join the forum and ask himself..

We don't want you mis-interpreting information back to him.

I've read some solid answers to your questions here, and you call Thatch an ass?

yeah, I should have stated that I wasn't sure of this to be true... the title is misleading, I just wanted people to read the thread and figured if it sounded like i was seriously bashing triumph then I'd turn a few heads.

What did I expect? I don't know, maybe a few bashings, but on how I'm wrong, not my innocent dad who is just misinformed due to my own stupidity. Bashing doesn't bug me, but of all the bashing I get one or I think maybe two actual posts with an answer that showed proof. Sorry, saying you have a degree and then not explaining sufficiently why or showing me an example doesn't do crap... for anybody.

If you don't speak up, I'm not going to believe that you're ever anything more than a shandy drinking twat that prefers to ride side saddle.

I gave you things to search on google, and I also pointed out that they have balancing shafts. It's not that hard to balance an odd numbered cylinder engine. Even a lot of twins use balancing shafts, and have for quite some time.

see, that is an answer

btw, my panties are't in a bunch. I get a rise out of this kind of crap. as soon as I get up from this thread, I'll be on my merry way. I'll continue posting. I'll continue just fine w/ no hate or anything towards anybody. I think its fun. The fault is my own and I know that. I didn't inform my dad well enough and in my own ignorance I posted what he told me w/o saying that I wanted evidence to show him he was wrong. It's myfault. I just got defensive (not panties in a knot) because they were bashing my dad and saying general statements that apply to people, not my dad.

Yeah, but it's no fun if you make them cry on the first attempt (thinks back to making my gf's sister cry and I wasn't even warmed up).

Taking the piss out of you, at least you fight back. Well, as well as a Welsh sheep-shagger can manage
