Let's see your Triumph
« on: July 20, 2011, 06:14:21 PM »
There seems to be a lot of interest among folks on this forum about Triumphs.  So let's see some of them.  Like Monte "Mongo" Miller says, "if there ain't a picture, it doesn't exist."

Here is my 2001 Bonneville, and my 1968 TR25W.

Love those Trumpets guys, here's mine:



Its a 2010 Bonneville SE, my main ride was a R1100RS before this.

I love my Bonnie, such a sweet handling bike.

This is what I lust after..... Don't own it yet, but if I get my settlement from the liquor store over my accident, I WILL. (There's just something about that all-black look!   ;)

Those Bonnevilles are sure pretty, that's why I bought mine.  But the exhaust note on a stock bike sounds wimpier than a Honda 90.  Must do something about mine, sooner than later. :-/

Just read Monte's Howto for posting pics first. So here's Winston in two different garbs: dressed for long distance travel and for the good time cruising:

Here's Winnie's party dress! The travelling garb is pretty ugly in a way but the Micatech aluminium cases sure are handy. The windshield is good for keeping off the wind and rain and those panniers behind my legs are great for those little things ya need quick. And they are cheapos from Amazon.com as they are ATV bags.
My only chore now is to get those wee bags back on without too much upset of the Micatech luggage racks which are based on a Givi rack with a SW Motech adapter plate. Givi rack from Norman Hyde in UK., specifically made for the Bonneville.

Agree, I went for the Triumph Off Road (TORs), they look exactly as stock but sound way nicer and authentic.

Nice SE, Love the fairing/screen on your cruising setup, what is it?

Hey trips, if you haven't guessed by now, I have a screen fetish,  ;), whats the one on your 65? Great bikes, how do you decide what to ride?

I got it from Gustafson Screens, someone here suggested they could identify and match my fairing (Greer Mach I), which they did. Not happy about  having not one, but 2 Gustafson windscreen emblems on it though, I consider it fairly tacky on their part, I wrote them asking if there was any way to remove the "unwanted and unsightly" logos on it, LOL.

Not sure if it was my SE's screen, RSMike,  which you were asking about but it is National Cycle's Street Shield with the addition of a Laminar Lip that was heat remolded slowly to fit the NC screens curvature. The Laminar Lip ordered was the one for the R65LS and that Lip fits BOTH the R65LS's shield and the Bonnie's after slow re-curving work with a heat gun. Just lucky or what??!!!!  The 3M dual-locks allow removal but best to order a packet of them as they wear faster when removed a lot. Laminar Lip sells them in lots of 10.

Sue, I asked this in another thread but you may have missed it.  Where did you find the Napoleans for Winnie?  Did you have to change bars?

RSMike, I just ordered a set of Emgo muffs for mine.  I didn't know that the TOR was an abbreviation for Triumph Off Road.  They are low pipes aren't they?  Did you rejet?  (Yes, I know that is always the question, isn't it!)

New Bonnevile in Murphy Texas Bengt! No bar change but did have to follow instructions from a fellow on the Triumph Rat forum. If you search on there it will probably bring up the right thread. There was a solid metal plug inside the bar ends that takes a bit of doing to drill so this guy figured out a way to mount the mirrors without disturbing these. Whatever he did I did and so far the mirrors are solidly in place...even a fall didn't loosen them.... ;)

I will see if I can find a link for you.....
