Triumph

I sold my beloved 990adv and I'm looking for a commuter bike that can use sometimes to ride to work and do some occasional touring around the state.

I want to keep a low budget and I don't need a rocket. I enjoy the riding.

I've looked at some amazing bikes like the Triumph street triple or Augusta brutale or Ducati monster... Beautiful but I fear it's too much hooligan.

.... I liked the Yamaha Bolt but I feel choppers are not my style.

I'm kind of liking the Triumph Boneville. It seems its a comfy bike and will do what I need. Seems like I can take my wife to a coffe or a couple of hours ride and she will ride comfortable.
Any comments? Can somebody show me where upstairs is this bike forum?


The Yamaha FZ09 looks good for the price.

My wife did not care for riding pillion on my Scrambler. She said the seat was too flat and she ended up staring at my shoulders. She liked the speed triple better. They are easy to be stoppid on though.

Look at the Triumph 800 Roadie. It's probably the best all-arounder I've ever owned (and I've owned a shit-load ). It's quick, light, takes regular gas, doesn't cost that much, good subframe for luggage, 2-year warranty, tubeless, good brakes, decent suspension, triple is very smooth. If I could only own one bike, this would be it.

The Street Triple makes a great commuter. Small, quick and agile. The newer ones are a little more tame. You'll have to test it and see. The Bonnie's are great too but not as good commuting. I've owned 3 of them. I assure you. The one good thing about the Bonnie is upkeep is a snap. Easy and cheap maintenance. Sucky for pillion. I don't care what anyone says. The Street is a little better but not much. The Bonnie cruisers are also a good option.
As for the Yammie FZ-09? If you think it's easy to get hooligan on a Street it's much easier on a FZ-09. Great option though.

Just test ride them and see. If you're on a budget you can easily find a 2013 leftover Bonnie cheap. 6k$? A 13 Street for as much as an FZ09. Triumph is a great marque.

Thanks, but what's a 800 Roadie?

Edit: Never mind, I found it ... The basic tiger 800

I'm kind of liking the Triumph Boneville. It seems its a comfy bike You must have a well padded assand will do what I need. Seems like I can take my wife to a coffe or a couple of hours ride and she will ride comfortable.

I answered in YELLOW.

I have Bonnie, not a big two upper IMHO. Occasionally, sure. Commuter, most assuredly. Change the seat, shocks and springs and she's a keeper 4 life. Unless your down sizing the stable..

990 to Bonnie leaves a G----A---------P

if you like to RIDE (as well as commute) and enjoy canyons then street triple all the way. in the R variety.

it's what everything else is compared to for a reason.
