It is exactly what I wanted
Difficult to start when cold, or difficult to keep running when the engine is cold, resulting in a dead battery multiple times.
No help from the dealer because he went belly up within the first month I owned the motorcycle, and the nearest dealer / service was approximately 100 miles away (on a motorcycle that appeared to be less than dependable). A few emails to the Triumph organization in Georgia netted me one brochure concerning accessories, and a single copy of the Triumph rider's magazine.
Over time I learned to tweak the idle adjustment and eliminate the battery failure, and to perform my own service requirements.
I owned a 1961 TR6, in 1962, and I practically lived on it. To work during the week and to play on weekends. After 47 years, when I saw the Bonneville T100 it was an easy decision to buy it. They have removed most of the vibration, eliminated the oil leaks, boosted the power and made it a very nice ride. It's heavier and quieter, but it's better.
I don't use the throttle as I once did, but it is easy to ride and accelerates effortlessly in all gears. Hilly, winding roads are still fun to ride. The clutch is smooth and the brakes are solid.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
