Hello from Pine Plains NY

I am looking at a 2010 Bonneville T100. I am 6'2" and about 200 pounds. Concerned about size of bike vs size of me. Anyone tall riding one of these. Any info appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome Geof; good to see a fellow NY'er coming in here. I am 6'5" at 220 and have an '06 T100. I changed out my handlebar to one that is wider and has less pull back on it so that I can have my shoulders opened up a little more and over the tank. Other than that, I think the Bonnies are one of the better bikes for us taller guys. I routinely will put anywhere from 300-500 miles in one day for an "outing." These are great bikes for us taller guys.

Hi GeofT, I'm in Rhinebeck, NY. My son & I are big Triumph fans. We have several. I don't have a T100 but I do have a Scrambler. If you are considering a Triumph check out Ed's Service in Hyde Park. He's been a Triumph dealer for 50+ years. Almost every Saturday morning a group of Triumph riders form up for a group ride. Starting point and end point is always Ed's Service. Good folks. Ride Safe.

Ride, Eat, Sleep, Repeat....

Thanks for the welcome Roy. Actually Ed's is holding my T100....and you're right they seem like great people! Gotta love that Scrambler too!
