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.

Thanks for your kind words. I have been getting a lot of responses on the Triumph page. Glad you all are enjoying it.

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

Those new ones sure do look pretty. I thought about putting a new one right next to this one:



Wouldn't that be nice...

Oh, and great site!

Just need to narrow the table a bit, you have to scroll side to side for us folks with our old 1024x768 displays

Very nice. As you'll see from reading the narrative on my site, I had a '79. I liked the red that they offered that year on the Tiger, so I got the dealer to swap the tank on my '79 Bonneville with a Tiger. I think it was just like yours but the colors were reversed. Yours looks great.

Thanks for your compliments on the site.
