Some people prefer the yellow and black striped model .
I love this one. Jus looks more integral , more organic . More inviting .

2005 I almost bought one of these Paul smart commemorative ss1000.
Bought a Bonneville  instead
The sales manager at the duck dealer was an annoying snob . At the time it was BMW/Ducati / Gilroy
The Triumph salesman was an older down to earth viet vet whom rode a boss hoss!
The asking prices on Paul Smart bikes these days are 25k and up .
Oh well. No regrets.

No doubt. It’s gorgeous and it appears to have a reasonable seat height.

The owner of my local Duc shop owns a 900SS just like that blue/silver example. It's beautiful and has a purposeful and elegant stance. That said, the 2006 Paul Smart replica Sport Classic 1000DS had far more performance in its bulkier (some might charitably say 'brawnier') package. Both look like torture racks to ride.

Maybe they are torture racks. Lol.
I will never know. A friend of mine sold a SS yellow one last year. I have no idea what he got for it. He had it for decades. But being a very large guy he didn’t ride it in recent times.

BMW did that to a lot of dealers.
The original Canton Cycles facility didn't meet BMW's standards.
I liked having a Triumph dealer close by.
I've been dealing with Libby's. They do a great job.

Well the BMW guy left Canton so they were pretty much stuck .
The last BMW they had was a black R1200c . Sat for months . I wish I had bought it .
The moved they bbq out of gengras side building and put triumph and BMW in there . That didn’t last .
Bills bought the rights to Lindeners and my good friend master mechanic Phil Cheney went to bills and then max .
He is now retired and living the life an a no Carolina farm . I assume gengras BMW is part of the MAX family of dealerships now.

Libby’s I still deal with . They are fine. My wife works down the street so that is cool. But the area is terrible to ride from Hamden . Canton was out there but route 8 is a hood run thru the rock cut watching the hawks .

its been covid after that anyway. maybe they have an event this year



my 2005 i bought from bill lord at canton

the fuel injection of the 2018 is great.

That 2005 creamsicle color or beautiful. I’ve always thought that was one of Trumpets best colors

Hawks.
Turkey buzzards are usually in groups.
These hawks are here and there gliding rather majestically amongst the cliffs.
I get them here at home as well . Off west Rock . They swoop pretty low at times. Just above gazebo height. Never saw them nab anything , but they are amazing to watch.

Turkey vultures have come thru here. But like a said there normally would be a flock of them and move thru in a couple of days.
The hawks are more solitary , stick in the area and seem to fly higher then the vultures. The vultures are brutal on road kill.
