I haven't been on these forums in a good few years, thought I'd jump back on as I finally got my A license in June, and treated myself to the bike I always dreamt about as a kid... Dream big, start big. Cool

The T100 Black. Took her for a day trip to the Peak District last week, racked up 1800 miles in a fortnight. Brilliant roads, beautiful scenery. I've added yellow tint vinyl to the headlight, and the Scrambler Grille. I'm fitting an X-Pipe decat this weekend.

Bottom line. I'M F*CKING LOVING IT. Thumbs Up

Thanks Thumbs Up What makes you say this? Past experiences? It's brand new, so I'd hope to see zero corrosion for a good few years. I've used ACF50 for many years, always kept the rust and oxidation away!

They are nice bikes I agree, but I wouldn't say you're dreaming particularly big. They are reasonably priced and have a decent power delivery for a new rider. It's a perfect first bike in many ways.

If you were dreaming big I'd expect to see you on a restricted H2!! Laughing

Remember kids, bikes aren't like lego. You can't easily take a part from one bike and then fit it to another.

It's a subjective thing, for sure, this for me is dreaming big (within reasonability/affordability Laughing ) I did debate the Bobber, but then thought about practicality and it wasn't my dream bike (awesome though. may I add).

H2 would be great fun for a track day, but sports bikes and ludicrous speed ain't my thang.

Hi, yeah, out of all the bikes I've owned, my Triumph America, owned from new, was the worst for corrosion, and that was in under 12 months, lovely ride though.. Still a lovely looking bike, yours, that is Thumbs Up

Triumphs are fine regarding corrosion if you keep them clean and give a squirt of WD40 or similar. I have a two year old Street Twin that I bought new and keep clean, is like new.
My first Hinkley Triumph was a Trident 900 in 1999, followed by an 02 Bonneville, a 97 Adventurer and a 2012 Bonneville.
Swear by them, never had an expensive problem and build quality is fine.
Enjoy your Bonneville, it looks a great bike.

Looks nice? I would like a new T120. What's it like to ride? I've never had a bike with fuel injection. How is the power delivery,.e.t.c?
