Reminds me why I started riding motorcycles 40 years ago
I have had absolutely no problems with my Triumph.
This is the second Triumph Bonneville I've owned. I left the first one for dead on a back road in Iowa after a catastrophic engine failure. That was 39 years ago.
My, how things change in 4 decades. My new Bonnie has most of the panache of the originals, with none of the problems.
Most of the bikes I've over the last 4 decades have been 4 cylinder Japanese bikes, with an occasional BMW sprinkled in.
This bike has virtually no shortcomings. It is a perfect around town bike. I've also put numerous 250+ mile days on the bike, and have found it a great long distance ride (except for the seat).
Mileage ranges from 40 to 49 mpg, making 150 miles between gas stops on the highway a reality.
I traded a 163 HP BMW for the Bonnie, and have not regretted it a single time.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
