    That's a beauty!

    Makes me want to get another bike.

    Love the look of Triumphs, and used to have a Yammie upright twin 650 (my faux Triumph).

    Stay safe!

    BBB,

    Wasn't the bike part of your loft's interior decoration?

    Inquiring minds....

    Don't. Have. Words. Should have sent...a poet.


    Seriously, though, she's gorgeous. Just another reminder of why I hope to one day own a Bonnie.

    She's truly a beautiful bike Aaron.

    I hope you're putting some miles on her.

    nice, I have a 1963 Bonneville in my permanent collection
    and my brother has a 750 tiger, my dad used to ride me to kindergarten on his Triumph 650 pre unit, so I guess Brit bikes run in the family!
