Bonneville T100

image

The moto that took us along the coast road was the modern Hinckley Triumph iteration of the Bonneville. It amply took us two-up along the way with easy balance, control of power and stopping. A mid-height screen broke the wind blast somewhat but with the higher bars and my tall pose gave me a direct buffeting in the face. The rental company had crash bars up front and a tail rack in rear ad well as a pair of handy panniers for our overnight stowage.

This was a carbureted engine having a smooth running engine which was a stark contrast to my 4 decade older Bonnie… A sweet ride indeed!
