A great ride
|This bike has the modern tweak with the old school class and looks. |
Review of the Bonneville submitted on 2011-08-24.
The 2005 Triumph Bonneville is a great bike. It has the old school look [only slight changes from the original Bonnes]and a few modern improvements such as the frame material, eliminating vibration, and the improvements that help it start reliably. It is very smooth to ride, goes quick when you want to take off at the lights but is an absolute pleasure to just sit back and cruise on [usually when the missus is on the back]. I love cornering and find that the Bonne goes great up the mountain and have never had any trouble with losing control even though I have semi off-road tyres. The few times I have skidded sideways on the straight, she just skids for a bit, then straightens up. So it even allows for rider error. A classic example is the ´infamous´ Eval Knieval jump at Caeser´s Palace where he loses it and comes off but the bike keeps goind straight on its own until Knieval bumps it.
I´ve ridden a KLX,a Honda CM 250 and a ZZR 1100 but the Bonne is the best.
I have done a few 4-6 hour rides and no problem with comfort at all. The Bonneville is so well balanced and great to ride. And I ride every day. I love it. Its got that Triumph class that is not showy and brash.
