2001 Triumph Bonneville
I can't wait for Spring... I love this bike
Absolutely nothing has gone wrong. Everything works, everything fits, runs well in any weather.
This is the best bike I have ever owned. The handling has taught me a lot about riding, in that is so very capable. It cruises at any sane speed, and will run 700 km a day, in complete comfort.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I am the proud owner of an '02 Bonneville. It is a very dependable, well-built and agile performer. I have over 7,000 miles on the odometer and have only needed to change it's oil. I'd recommend this bike to anyone who is looking for a modern classic.

I've owned a few bonnies, but the only one that really got to me was a 1961 bonnie, lot less vibey than the 750.
Realistic 115mph and needing setting up every weekend, but high level open megas, 1 1/4 gps, 2/3134 cams, 1 tooth up engine sprocket, lightened/balanced crank, Dunlop GP tyres, remote oil tank with tons of neat r40. Terrifying mods as they got passed at about 100mph with 6" to spare by what sounded like a Spitfire plane, and girls with the shortst mini skirts, ohhhhhhh, those were the days.

I've owned both an '03 Bonneville and an '06 Thruxton, and thought they were both terrific bikes! The only complaint I ever had with either and both of them, is that Triumph went cheap on the suspension, and they both seemed to soften up after a few thousand miles. I replaced the original suspension on the bonneville after 4000 miles with progressive's front and back and WOW, it was a totally new bike! The handling and feel of the bike improved dramatically. I highly recommend an aftermarket suspension upgrade as the first and only improvement needed on these bikes.
