Triumph addict

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.

Vibration from hell

I had a 1968 Triumph Bonneville. damn thing was bullet proof, but vibrated the crap out of me. After a long ride my ass was numb.

Are they still that way?

Not at all. I think you would be very pleasantly surprised if you took one out for a ride.

Fine job!

Just this summer I tracked down the 1967 BSA Lightning I sold when I was 20 years old. I'm 58 now and I had a blast this summer putting 2,000 miles on the old girl. It had several homes thru the years but they were all good ones. The bike looks great at thirty feet or thirty miles an hour and that's good enough.

Great job. Thanks!

2007 Bonneville...it vibrates a little more than a boxer but less than a good thumper mill. I don't consider it excessive nor annoying.

In the unfortunate event that you have even a low speed fall, those stock handlebars will fold up like a cheap lawn chair and impact the gas tank. Oh, and get some frame sliders; those engine covers are damned expensive to replace. Ask me how I know.

S'aright. We read it. Twice.

Good work Gatling.
