I bought another Triumph Please Help!
« on: October 20, 2019, 12:58:45 PM »
I became a Triumph convert a while ago buying a 2013 Trophy SE in 2014.  I love the bike and have put over 23,000 miles on it.  In fact I was so impressed with the engine, I bought a second Triumph, a 2015 Explorer 1200 XC, early last year.  That also was a great bike to ride but a little tall and top heavy for me.  As I age (66) and believe myself to be shrinking (5' 10") I found it more difficult to maneuver the Explorer at a stop and mount or dismount from it.

I traded the Explorer in this week on a new 2018 T-120 Bonneville. (Notice I am keeping the Trophy.)  My plan is to use the Bonneville for short rides around town and use the Trophy for all longer rides.

Now to explain why I need help.

This forum has been a great source of information on the Trophy, and there is a great forum for the Explorer (tiger-explorer.com).  Is there a forum this good for the 2018 T-120 Bonneville?  If you know of one, please let me know.

Hope to see you on the road, ride safe.

The TriumphRat forum may have a section for the new Bonneville.  Have a look. :821:

"Googling" finds a few different Forums purporting to be for the "new" Bonneville,
yet those I had a quick look at sport the "Old" Meriden Triumph Logo !  :138:
