Hello from Iowa

I recently bought a Triumph Bonne, went a lot of years without/not wanting to ride motorcycles but this spring the bug once again bit me so I ran out and bought a 14 Bonneville, I have a 70 Triumph that hasn't run in some 38-40 years but one of these days......
I've had everything from Honda's, Yamaha's, Kaw's, Suzuki's, raced ice bikes back in the late 70's...
Always wanted a Triumph that worked! now I have it.

Welcome to the forum!

Yes sir, the modern Triumphs are a bit more reliable. I love my Triumphs! But the classics are beautiful.

If you intend to get that classic running, the folks in the Classic, Vintage, and Veteran section can be of help. And for your Bonneville, please introduce yourself in the Twin Talk section and browse the threads there.

We are happy to have you.
