Finally Got A Triumph

Last week I stopped wanting a Bonneville when I took delivery of a 2020 T120 Diamond. I actually went to check out a Speed Twin not knowing the dealer had a Diamond in stock. When I saw it I was hooked. I added JBQ bar risers yesterday, next will be bar ends and a small tailbag. Exhaust will wait till spring because snow isn't far enough away.
I'm loving the bike so far. I'm coming off a big Indian but with most of my riding being close by it was a big heavy bike for my riding. Awesome bike but a big, heavy girl.

Congrats!

Just curious, why not a lighter Indian, like the Bobber Scout?

I had a Scout a few years ago and it was a fun bike but not very comfortable for me at 6'2"

Congratulations!

I haven't owned a bazillion bikes, but enough to judge differences. The T120 has been my favorite of the ones I have ridden or owned. It doesn't do anything particularly well, but it will do anything you ask of it well enough to appreciate the experience.

Enjoy!
