Arrow Offical 2012 Triumph Steve McQueen SE T100 thread

I recently ordered a Triumph Steve McQueen SE T100.
http://www.triumphmotorcycles.com/mo.../special/10238
Come May/June they should start arriving at the Dealers.
1,100 of the Steve McQueen SE's will be manufactured, a little over 300 (?) will be imported to the U.S. Each will have a plaque between the handlebar with an identifing number (1/1,100 etc.).
I thought it would be interesting to keep track of as many Triumph Steve McQueen SE T100's as possible.
When you receive your Steve McQueen T100 check in with your special identifing number, Country & State.
And don't forget to post pictures of your new Triumph Steve McQueen SE!

I just read the review in Motorcyclist. Not what I would call a glowing review.

What's to review? It's a regular Bonneville with some different paint and some Steve McQueen stickers.

Sounds like you wrote the review.

One interesting tidbit of useless info in the article; Triumph has built 120,000 Bonnevilles since 2000... that's 1 in every 5 bikes Triumph builds.

I still prefer my 'Great Escape' version I did 2 yrs ago. It was also a lot cheaper!
First version even had a sprung saddle.






And a later version with the scrambler seat.

I had a good look at the Steve McQueen T100 at the Progressive Motorcycle Show in Charlotte, North Carolina on Saturday. It was upstaged by the new Tiger Adventure, but they had drawing entry forms to fill out because they are giving away a Steve McQueen T100 to a lucky winner. I filled out an entry and I sure wasn't the only one who did.

As far as I could tell, the Triumph area at the show was the most crowded area in the convention center. Triumph is exciting to those of us who ride them and those who are thinking about a new motorcycle. That is good news indeed. Whatever the press says is up to them. People like Triumph.

Regards, Chuck

I just read the review and am not sure what the problem is. Seemed very accurate to me.

Did you disagree with the part about kayaba forks and shocks being a little lacking?

Maybe the fact that the solo seat was nice unless you wanted to do two up?

HP or torque numbers?

I did note they are going to be hard to come by. I like the bike just as much as any other Bonneville but do not understand the morbid fascination with all things Steve McQueen. I am pretty sure he would not authorize this if he were alive but that is just my speculation.

Much like Paul Newman it seemed his acting was just something he did to support his racing habit.
