It's Hinckley Triumphs 15th year anniversary since they started importing to North America.  Though that's not a very long time, it is long enough that some riders have become quite attached to these Brit-bikes.  I made this poll cause I was curious how about Triumph ownership here.  Myself, I have been on Triumphs for the past 7-years, since Spring of 02.  

By the way, if you haven't seen it, Triumph is having some promotions related to their 15-year anniversary - http://www.triumphmotorcycles.com/usa/11206.aspx  - Zero percent, zero down, zero payments all summer.  Ends May 2.

I had a 2002 Sprint RS from May 03 to June 06 (43K miles). Great all-around bike. Wanted something sportier, lighter, and better suspended, so I bought a sportbike (2005 Kawi ZX6R). I would buy a Triumph again. No complaints. Mine was pretty much stone-axe reliable.

I've "technically" had my 03 for a little more than 4 years, but it'll be five come November...

When thinking about another bike, I start with the other triumphs before contemplating another brand...  Am I getting to be as bad as a Harley owner?

Mmmmm..... Thunderbird Sport.  Sexiest bike to ever come from Hinckley, IMO.

Our Trophy and Bonneville both joined the family in '05, so going on 4 years.  Mixed bag in reliability.  Head gasket leak on the Trophy (replaced under warranty), Bonneville has had leaks from the valve cover gasket, and now the countershaft seal.

1995 Trophy 1200. Got it in '04 I think. Had a '67motor/'69frame TR6R with Bonnie mods. Later upgraded to disc brake and then sold it. I have a frame, suspension, wheels and a few other assorted parts for another unit-twin project bike - but all of that will be up for sale at the upcoming Kentucky Walneck's swapmeet May17. I like the Trophy 1200. Mine has a few modifications from stock, and would probbly not be recognized by most as a Trophy 1200 any more.

1995 Daytona 1200, when I found STN that was my screen name, I bought it around Xmas time 2001 had it 2 years, sold it and bought my RS (new) in 2003. I would buy another Triumph, I've had very good luck with both of them, but also won't limit myself to just Triumph.

2 years here.  In fact, I'd love to get a Rocket III. (classic, of course.  I hate the look of that single headlight).  I keep telling everyone that they'll have to pry my Sprint from my cold, dead fingers before I'll let it go.  I love this bike.
