I ride and 06 America now with 19,000 miles on it and love it. I did change the front and rear sprockets to get a better highway ride. I don’t care too much on the red light to red light thing at 55 years old. I have owned a few road bikes and the America is a good all-around bike and draws attention where ever I stop. It won’t cruise with the big boys on the highway but just add a GPS and arrive a few minutes later. I ride year round weather permitting and the America has been very easy to work on. A little on the small side but fun fun fun to ride. Can’t wait until spring to get out more.

bought a '12 bonnie se last year, great bike, but I find 2 up is just not comfy after an hour or so. we're trading in for a '13 America. sat on both the America and speedster today, much prefer the America for peg position, passenger seating and handlebar setback. have not driven the America yet tho.

12 degrees - that's a perfect temperature to test drive a Triumph . Take a 40-min drive down to Belle Plaine Motorsports and take them for a spin.
