Here's my bonnie.
10 months old, 1 owner. Picked her up last Thursday. The previous owner had a tacho fitted, mainstand, loud pipes and mouth organ badges.
Just done over 500 miles on her and done a few mods myself.

Gaiters, Norman Hyde western bars, 60s replica seat and fitted a scrambler rear mudguard (shorter).
Gonna get some orange stripes on the tank and she'll look a bit more like a '65TT.

Handles gravel tracks ok :-)

Excellent Lucifer.
It's good to get off the beaten track now and again.

Added a rack to my bike today, also I've been testing this cortech bag setup, works pretty well. Doing a 2500 mile ride next week, so getting ready for that.



Not sure what to put on the rack. I'm thinking 1 gallon gas can and a cooler for this trip.

Hey Natch, can you post some info on your luggage setup? My wife has a Bonnie and needs some capacity so we'd welcome thoughts - in particular, your saddlebags - who makes 'em, and do you run them on a frame? Thanks. - BrianK

Edit - I see that they are Cortechs, but any additional info would be appreciated. Thanks.

Yes it's thye cortech sidebag / tailbag system. I use the triumph oem side rails - for everyday use I have triumph city bags, but they don't hold much. The rails, however, are very nice for holding the cortech bags off the shocks.

Here's a pic of just the rails:



Go to www.tourmaster.com and you can see the bags there, plus I think you can get local retailer info. I believe www.denniskirk.com and www.shadetreepowersports.com both sell this bag set up. I bought mine from shade tree. I really like it - the whole bag set up attaches / detaches from the bike in a few seconds.

Oh yeah - it's called the cortech tribag system http://www.tourmaster.com/xcart/cata...-p-146_31.html and http://www.tourmaster.com/xcart/cata...-p-147_31.html
