Fifty five now and I ride a Thruxton. I was seventeen when I brought a 650cc 1971 BSA lightening.

08 Thruxton silver carburetted. AI removed, Ricor intiminators, Ricor rear shocks, Predator exhaust, Pirelli sport demon tyres .

30 yrs old now, bought my Thruxton when I was 29. Been riding for six years or so, but this is my first Triumph. And I will not get rid of it.

Bought my 07 T100 five years ago and still love it. I am 63 now, if I make it to March I will have been riding 50 years. Started on a little 63 Honda. Also have a Kaw Nomad, but Bonneville is my favorite of all the ones I have had. I wanted a Triumph in the sixties but couldn't afford one.
