My obligatory gravel road shot.
Love that tank...
sweet ride...where was photo taken?
Thanks, guys. It was taken on the road to Racetrack Playa in Death Valley. We never made it, unfortunately; my riding partner's F650 GS Dakar's chain and sprocket were wrecked and the chain kept getting thrown.
My friend Chris's T350a race bike is ready for the classics festival next month.

What's the info on the wheels? I'd be interested in running tubless tires on a bonnie.
Triumph Performance Carrozeria Wheels
I like it!
Youch! My wallet hurt just looking at that link.
Dagnabbit, now I have to go to the Triumph dealership this week and check out a black Bonneville.
Kewl.. ask for Bob Domino.. tell him Chris sentcha..
OK I went to the Triumph dealership today.
They have something for me:
Now we just need to get squared up on the terms of the deal. I could have it as early as tomorrow afternoon. They're not far off of my happy place so hopefully this will have a happy ending.
Nice. That's my favorite T100 color scheme.
Congrats, it's beautiful!
It's a done deal now. The bike is in my driveway.
While I was there, they had a Scrambler that was sold sitting right next to my T100. I'll tell you what, that Scrambler was a GORGEOUS bike. I took a picture with my phone, will post it later if it turns out ok.
I have a question about the Bonneville vs Scrambler. The Scrambler is down about 10hp from the Bonneville isn't it? It's "tuned" for torque. Can anyone who rides both regularly give their thoughts. Is the Bonneville noticeably stronger? I'm 200+ lbs, would a Scrambler be feeling it lugging my overweight arse around?
The reason for my question is we both used to ride 750 Honda Shadows. Jodie a Spirit and me the Ace. The Ace had slightly taller gearing than the Spirit, but on level ground both bikes were pretty even. But get into the hills and Jodie would be pulling away from me handily at 70MPH, while I was WFO and loosing ground. The only real difference being my Ace having to move an additional 70lbs.
Just curious, if it would be a similar scenario with the Bonnie and Scrambler. Jodie is still waiting for delivery of her Bonneville and I've been eyeing the Scrambler, thinking the two would go well together.
The bonnie has the 360 degree firing order and the scrambler has the 270 from the twin cruisers. A lot of what I've heard from people is that they seem to prefer the 270. My only experience is the 360 on my bonnie and the 270 on my brothers speedmaster. They're not too far apart, but the 270 is (imo) smoother and more forgiving. The 360 gets happy around 3k but the 270 seems happy as low as 2.1k.
