The June Triumph of the Month contest is live, but with some much needed updates. Please read carefully below, as voting especially, has changed.

  • You no longer vote via LIKES. The last week of each month going forward, a poll will be added to the thread with all the entries and you will have 7 days (or 5, depending on how quick I am to get the poll up and how well the thread is moving) to cast your vote. This is a more traditional way of running things and based on feedback, will be a welcome change.
  • You must own the submitted bike.
  • You can enter 3-5 pics of your bike. I would strongly suggest submitting pics with no people in it (dogs are fine) or at the least, crop them out of it.
  • Feel free to give a little backstory on your bike. Whether that be the modifications it has, how you came to own it, or just a fun story. Don't be afraid to share your bike's story.
  • If you have won in a previous month, you can no longer enter for the rest of the year. However, if you have a second bike that meets the above criteria, you can enter that.
The winner at the end of the month will win a free 1 Year Premium Membership for the forum and a custom flair under their username. If the winner is already a premium member, their subscription will be extended an additional year.

Winners will be featured on the sites gallery, found here.

Congrats to May's Triumph of the Month winner, @Kiwidave4!

-Mike

Not strictly for ride of the month(sorry)
I own a 1970 T120R leaf spring model and have the normal problems indexing the gear box.
To resolve this ,I have had a conversion kit made to enable the plunger spring to be fitted .
I now have a gear box which is easy to index, and selects gears positively.
This is a complete kit and is available now for those who may want to have the conversion

Lots of custom bits and fabrication like the skid plate, footpegs, seat and stainless exhaust. Hand lettered tank, British Racing Green. No chrome, except the stock nickel plated Triumph frame. Single carb head for better response off road. Built for show and go.

Last fall I was out riding and saw an older gentleman who seemed to be struggling with his bike so both out of concern and curiosity I followed him to his driveway. I wanted to see the bike up close which he was proud to show me. Sadly suffering from Parkinson’s he said he was taking it on one last ride “do you want to buy it?” After taking it for a quick spin down the highway I rolled back up to where he was waiting and without much hesitation I said “ Sold! “. Although I could see it in his face it was hard to let go he was happy it was going to a good home. It’s a 2012 T100 and had only 500 miles on it. Of course I did a few things to make it my own and once I get on it it’s hard to get off.

This bike won once before, April 2014. Near as I can tell it was two owners ago. And if anyone has the ability to email adventurejim on here, he may like to see where his bike has ended up. I have only owned it for about 2 weeks, took off some extra stuff, added the little bags, and can't seem to get the grin off my face.
Respect,

This is my T120 Bud Ekins Special, I acquired it about six months ago from someone who was moving and had to sell it. I have updated the suspension, removed the Cat and changed the awful tyres.
I have always wanted a Bonneville and have finally realised that dream, personally I think it’s a beauty.
looking forward to many miles of happy riding.

This is my first triumph motorcycle and I love it. I started with an all factory 2008 carbureted bonneville. I have added some performance parts to suit my needs. I wanted to try and keep all fenders, lights and paint original as I bought the bike because of how it looks, and I really am not a fan of a bunch of aftermarket led lights and blinkers. They look tacky to me. I have plans to maybe track this bike in the near future. So suspension will be addressed shortly a long with a different tank. Hate to mess this one up on the track.
bolt on performance:
Emgo slip ons
Bellacourse foam pod filters
Bellacourse air box delete
Sprocket Center Lighter chain and sprockets
New bonneville oil pressure gauge and oil temp
Ebc hh pads


ergo and body:
Lsl rearsets
Norman Hyde m bars
Biltwell grips
J&P brat seat
Tamarit belly pan
No name bar end mirrors

That old man then miracously recovered went out and picked up another T100 and sold it the following week after scouting out a sucker who was going to pay over the odds after hearing the sob story. He's currently sold 31 bikes this way 😄
