Triumph Motorcycles

Everybody's sleeping off the Thanksgiving dinner...great day today, but I'm the only one still awake. So, I finished a web page I started a few days ago on my fascination with the greatest motorcycles in the world. That page is here:

ditto.
nicely done.

the new street triple has, I think, tipped the scales toward my first Triumph.
The only hesitation I have is I'm hoping for a Tiger Cub with that drivetrain.....

Wow, that's a great site you have!! Great pics too. But, dang it, you are fueling my growing passion for a Bonnie. It's one of three bikes I've wanted since I first gained motorcycle awareness back in the 60's. (The other two were the Sportster and Commando, and I now have a Sportster.)

+1 to you. I'm a 2001 Bonne owner and really like the triumph line. Easy to ride, quick, handles well and easy to wrench.

Only one thing for you to do, and that's what I did a couple months ago.

Like the Commercial Says, "Just Do It". I just traded a BMW GS (84) for a 2006 Bonneville. I have another BMW cafe racer (86), so they can't throw me out of the Airhead Club, but the Triumph is very cool (imho). I've wanted a Triumph for years, over forty, and finally made the jump. My Sportster was quicker than my Bonnie, but there's more to it than that. The Bonneville is just one of those bikes that does all of it pretty well and is a joy to ride. I see it as one of the last real motorcycles.

Don't hold out for it. Although Triumph are working on a Cub there isn't a release planned yet. Let's just say that 2009 builds don't have it listed.

Yep, agreed,
We're an all-Triumph household now. Also doesn't hurt that the local dealership (Freedom Cycle-Reno) is a dream to deal with.

Gatling, before you spend another dime farkling your Speed Triple, ditch the stock handlebars for a set of Renthal's or Pro-Taper bars. In the unfortunate event that you have even a low speed fall, those stock handlebars will fold up like a cheap lawn chair and impact the gas tank. Oh, and get some frame sliders; those engine covers are damned expensive to replace. Ask me how I know.

S'aright. We read it. Twice.

Good work Gatling.

No place to mount them on the Duc.
