Bonneville T100 for city riding only?
First time posting here. Iím an absolute beginner in the triumph world and need your help!
I wanted to ask you guys about something I heard about the Bonneville t100 that might make me go for a different bike if itís true..
I want to buy the t100 to ride exclusively around the city, go to work and back home, go to the gym, take my wife to dinner, etc, do all the stuff I usually do on my day to day, ride about 10 miles per day I guess. At the moment Iím not considering going for any weekend rides (perhaps I will in the future though). So, my question is: do you guys think the t100 is too much of a bike for city riding only?
Iíve heard somebody saying that I wouldnít be using the 900cc engine properly because it was designed for long and high speed rides and might cause some issues in the long run. He also said the engine wouldnít even have time to rise to a decent temperature if Iím only doing short rides. And that Iíll need to go for long rides in the weekends in order to make the engine run as itís required.
Any comments about this would be really appreciated since Iím an absolute newbie on this subject and Iím not able to find info online. I feel that if I go to a dealer with this question they would quickly say itís BS because theyíd just want me to buy the bike!
Thanks so much in advance everybody
