    Chicago. There's never a shortage of music to check out, of all kinds. But after 15 years here I'm actually looking to move. Bands, bars, clubs etc. used to be a priority, now I want freedom from traffic, a bigger garage and a yard for my dog. (no burbs or strip malls though)

    cheers

    Nice bike...who makes the saddlebags? Those are humongous. Mounting system? specs....

    they are saddlemen drifters (slant)

    they are really too big for me because they cover up the rear pegs - I want to go down a size, maybe two

    but they hold a boatload of gear

    they are throwovers so they go on and off in about 5 minutes or less

    I used these lugggage racks - cheapest solution out there and the most discreet looking I think - available here for around fifty bucks

    (not my bike, pic is cribed from the sellers website)

    the vendor is a pretty good guy to trade with too

    I am selling my bags to get some smaller ones

    I have a motofizz bag I like a lot so I just do not need that kind of space

    :spam alert

    I wanna sell them so if you want them send me an email and maybe we can work something out pmlaw7@yahoo.com

    It's been freezing since the day I brought it home from the dealer last week, so just waiting to put some miles on soon.

    I picked this low mileage 2004 T100, two weeks ago,
    <!-- BBCode Start -->[​IMG]<!-- BBCode End -->

    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.

    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

    [​IMG]


    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.
