Quest for the Perfect Motorcycle

MotorcyclesIf you follow, you probably already know that I own a Triumph Bonneville T100 and a BMW R1200RT. These are great motorcycles. But, that hasn’t stopped me from searching for the perfect motorcycle. Perfect for me, anyway.

Triumph had their demo trailer at TriValley Moto this past Friday and Saturday. I was fortunate enough to spend considerable time test riding many of the Triumph line of motorcycles. My test rides included the Thunderbird, Sprint GT, Speed Triple, Daytona 675 and Tiger. It was a lot of fun. It was also very exhausting. The bottom line. If I could only have one Triumph motorcycle, it would be my Bonneville T100. Other bikes, such as the Thunderbird, Sprint GT and Tiger, would probably be more comfortable on long rides. And, the Daytona 675 Sport Bike and Speed Triple Street Fighter are a blast on twisty roads. But, the Bonneville T100 fits me best. Over the next week or two, I’ll post my reviews and impressions of all of these bikes. So, stay tuned.

Victory also had a demo trailer at the Arlen Ness Victory dealership. I also had a chance to test ride a Victory Crossroads and Victory Kingpin. I’ll post my impressions on these bikes as well.
