    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.....:super

    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.

    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:

    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.

    I too have become a Triumph addict. I think I have owned 10 Hinkley models -just bought my first Tiger (07). Had a yellow 1200 like in your pic. One of my favorite bikes and I still look for them for sale. Crazy fast and a great look. Traded in my 06 Speed Triple for the Tiger. Another great/fun bike. Currently putting a 70 TR6 back together.

    I have never had one ounce of trouble with any of my Triumphs. Of course I usually never keep them long enough for anything to happen. The Tiger will probably stick around for awhile. It does everything well and is a real joy to ride. I didn't think I would like the upright riding position but it has worked out great. Thinking about a few suspension upgrades to make it more track-day worthy.

    Great site and thanks for stirring up some great memories! Long live Triumph!

    Yep, agreed,
    We're an all-Triumph household now. Also doesn't hurt that the local dealership (Freedom Cycle-Reno) is a dream to deal with.
