These are the descriptions from a dictionaries  of the noun Triumph. What a great word to utilize for a motorcycle, the idea of a journey, its speed and a destination as well as the item itself. It has the vision of some banner fluttering in the wind in regal success. Other Marques are family names: Honda, Ducati Barley Davidson to mention a few. Others the name of a location: BSA, BMW. Indeed few have a moniker regaling a people such as Indian. But it’s Triumph that fill you with spirit once your heading off down the road with the mere whiff of throttle.
