I was surprised to see that wicked bend, myself. In fact, if you use the "create my Triumph" tool on their website, it doesn't even show it. All in all though, I am very happy with the Arrow system. I still have the baffles in, and it is quiet at idle, but makes a terrific note as the revs climb.

It's not mine, but that looks like a "Shift" logo on the shoulder...

Gorgeous, but I have to tell you that your grips remind me of the days when Coke came in 6 oz. bottles.

My bad - lack of elucidation. Should have read "...6 oz. bottles with the crimped on metal caps."

Now, if I can just get back in my wheelchair....


Nurse..... nurse......

Does it fit me???

Hey folks,
I love the Bonneville. I have to admit...I'm a little bit insecure and vain about the size of the bike. Being 6'3 I'm used to driving bikes like the FJR or the KTM 950 Adventure. But I have to tell you there is something that is really pulling me to purchase a Bonneville. I don't want to look like a dog making love to a football when I'm driving this beauty. How tall are most of you???

Thanks.

I'm 6'0" 230# and it feels very natural, not cramped at all, but I do have only a 31" inseam.
