I've got three Triumphs in the garage right now. A 2001 Sprint ST with 8,800 miles, a 2006 Tiger with 3,000 miles and a 2010 Thunderbird with 1,900 miles. I usually buy ultra low mileage bikes from folks that buy them new and then simply don't get around to riding them. I have 8 bikes right now and ride them all. Tends to keep the mileage relatively low on all the bikes.

The Sprint and the Tiger (gotta love the triples)



The Thunderbird with the 1700cc parallel twin

Any major differences from 2011 to 2012 model besides the square-ish lights thing? I realize the new ones are quite updated and improved as well. Another option.

Nice colour!
I think the 2011-12 changes are minor cosmetic, although others here may know for sure. This year's model sees bigger changes as noted.

I'm about to put this up for sale if I can get time to take some decent pics..

The reason it's up for sale is sitting on it....



Stuff you can't see is lots of carbon, GSXR 750 calipers/MC, bar end mirrors, etc....

PM me if you're in the market, or wait for the FM ad to go up in the next few days

Thanks. They do go pretty good with our body style, eh?

They're just some cheap 11 LED signals from Lockhart Phillips. And I moved the stock fronts to the rear since they're about an inch shorter.

AKDuc ... Love that Daytona

Here's a couple pics from last week. New Michelin PR3's provide great handling wet or dry.

Laugh Its good to read this thread

Because it's making me remember how great my 2009 T100 Bonneville is. I've owned her since new but ever since reading and watching Ewan and Charley on their trips I've been hankering for something with longer legs (so to speak) Like a new Tiger 800 for example.

A number of weeks back, I have to have some work done on the Bonnie. Long story made short, my dealer loans me an 800 XC from the end of day Sat. till Tues. morning.

Suffice it to say I rode the heck out of that thing, putting in about 180 miles on that Sunday and a commute on the Monday.

In short, the 80 XC is a brilliant bike. Commanding view of the road, great engine, smooth power delivery (for anyone with a FI Bonneville, you know this is a big deal). Very comfortable to ride, nicely set-up as stock. I am 5' 9" tall and with the seat in its lowest position, I wasn't able to flat-foot at stops but I never felt awkward.

The only issues I had was that the a trim piece on the frame hit me on the inside of my knees which was not great and my right foot/leg got a bit baked from the exhaust/converter which is under the engine on the right side.

Then we talked price... holy jeepers! $12,300 before freight, prep and taxes. The dealer offset the freight and prep by including the Triumph panniers but that still left an $8,000 difference between my bike and the Tiger.

Too rich for my blood at this point. Maybe someday. Used...

In the meantime, the Bonnie has a summer shield, re-worked forks, soon-to-arrive Hagon shocks and the Triumph soft bags. All ready for the trip I've yet to take.

I, also, have found the T100 to be a capable long distance tourer. The only two stock issue I found was the standard saddle (I replaced mine with the Triumph King and Queen) and the headlight that either shines directly infront of the bike on the ground or in the trees (I added a pair of Model 30 LEDs from ADVMonster). I've been from central FL to northwestern AR and back and forth to the Blue Ridge multiple times with a full camping load on her.

I would like a bigger tank as mileage gets down to 38 per gallon at 80/85 mph when slabbing it to get somewhere interesting, mine is carburetted. That means stopping every 110 miles for gas. By 150 the tank is dry (and that I KNOW!).



Aside from that, and I have a Sargent seat, I love the versatility of the modern Bonneville.

New to Triumph

My fiance has been wanting a new bike for years. Since she's agreed to marry me, I got her an early wedding present...




It's one of those really nice "gifts", like a bowling ball with my name on it, you know?
