Second bike, anyone?
« on: March 05, 2014, 11:00:20 pm »
As much as I believe there's no better bike than the Trophy, I'm hankering after a second bike. Any recommendations? Up to £10,000 and something that would sit nicely next to the Trophy' yet different.

An aventure tourer.  I would go for the 800 Tiger even though it has chain drive. It is lighter than the Explorer but plenty of power. I know a few riders with them and they love them.

I'd second that being an 800 XC owner.

You might also consider one of the Bonneville variants, I personally love the Thruxton for being a selfish hooligan but perhaps the Scrambler might appeal to you personally.

I have a 1978 Honda 400 Hawk. Go forever on a tank of gas and great for around town or short rides. Easy to repair if needed. Great conversation starter too. Oh yeah, it's the orange one.

Speed Triple if you want to stay Triumph. MV Augusta otherwise.
