It had some nice options such as Ohlins shocks and Stainetune pipes, but also some Mary Poppins items such as the screen and the bags and the standard bars

So the modification disease started, jets, unifilter, M bars, dart screen ( still on route), 18 tooth sprocket, and today I ordered Pirelli Sport Demons. Here are some pics of a ride out in middle TN today with my buddy Tom on his Ducati GT100

ok the used Bonnieville, new-to-me, was half the cost of the new Ducati GT, it gets just as much attention and sounds sooooo good. It is a little down on the Ducati in the engine power dept but for real world riding it is good company.
I do love the wheels on the Duc and in the future I plan on upgrading the Bonnie rims to Excell alloy items. The handling on the Triumph is fine, mine has Ohlins rear shocks and will have progressive springs in the forks soon, the brakes are good and the ergos suit a variety of rider sizes. The bottom line is with a few tweaks the Triumph is a good match for the Ducati, they both deliver the retro bike looks and the Triumph is actually more retro but without oil leaks and crap electrickery. Take a test ride on one as I did, but be prepared to want one, real bad, regardless of what motorcycles you own or have owned.

I like the look of those Emgos. Nice sound, too.

A few not-that-sexy pics of my zumo 550 freshly mounted.

I think I might get a Touratech cross-bar and mount because damn, that's pretty obnoxious.


Stock to modified splash screen in t-minus 3 seconds.

that thing looks ready for a ride to anywhere

very cool

I'd take that over a GS any day

there is a guy on one of hte other Bonnie boards that is making a ram mount that covers the big nut on the triple tree




this is a prototype

I think he is going in to production with this

pretty sure his name is D9 over on triumphrat.net

I had this for about a year and sold it last summer. It was uncomfortable to me, although it looked great.

That's the only thing I had against the Bike, it was too cramped.
What a good looking bike though.
