Craig Vetter Bonneville TT

Guys, here's a great article from Craig Vetter on the Bonneville TT. Hurricane info is here too.

Great article but I'm not liking his TT. As an attempt to get back to the spirit of the 68-70 Bonnie it fails big time. In fact what Meriden did with the OIF later in the export models looks far better.

Yeah, I agree, Nick. I don't really care for Vetter's designs, period. That Bonnie TT just looks...weird.

for what they are, i can appreciate Vetter's designs, especially the Hurricane (gorgeous, in my opinion). but as an attempt to regain Triumph's glory days, he went further away from the target than Triumph did. terrible.
