Triumph Bonneville T100

For those of you that read my review of the Triumph Bonneville awhile ago, this will probably not come as a surprise. I now own a Triumph Bonneville. It was one of the motorcycles I drooled over in High School. I just love the way it looks. The retro 1968 styling in a new motorcycle is the best of both worlds.

I had ridden a Bonneville many times before. I was always tempted to buy one. But, I didn’t want to sell any of my existing motorcycles, and I found it hard to justify another bike. So, how did I resolve this dilemma? I weighed my alternatives. My BMW R1200RT is my touring bike. Nothing beats it for long rides, especially on the highway. The Bonny clearly wouldn’t replace the RT. That left the BMW F800ST, my sport bike. Despite really liking the ST, my heart was won over by the Bonny.

It’s only been a couple of weeks. Just a few hundred miles. Too early to give you many details. However, early indications are that it is everything I hoped for, and more. It is a lot of fun to ride, and its looks amazing. I’ll do a more complete review once I’ve put more miles on it. Stay tuned.
