Hav­ing just read the road test on the Tri­umph Speed­mas­ter (MCN, May 9) I'm amazed to see that Jon Urry's fi­nal com­ment on the painfully un­com­fort­able bike was to get the com­fort seat at £195 for a bike cost­ing just short of £12,000. Frankly, I think it's an insult for a man­u­fac­turer to of­fer a "com­fort seat" as an ex­tra. Tri­umph man­aged to pro­duce a very com­fort­able seat for the LT Thun­der­bird as stan­dard, why not for the Speed­mas­ter? Our will­ing ac­cep­tance of this think­ing has led to the demise of the stan­dard-fit cen­tre­stand and to man­u­fac­tur­ers fit­ting in­ad­e­quate sus­pen­sion, know­ing we will fork out on up­grades to make the bikes easy to live with and ca­pa­ble of long dis­tances (which they should be al­ready).
