I owned a Thruxton R and sold it after I got the 961. The Triumph could have had any badge on the tank and it felt about as bland as listening to compressed music files. Yes the Thruxton is leaps and bounds better than the 961 in every measurable area, and MP3 music has it's place (I guess). That doesn't mean that my 961 is a keeper, I get bored very quickly, but after 3 years of ownership I must admit I'm finding it difficult to let go.
