A bike like the Triumph Bonneville practically cries out for customizing. My own Bonnie suggests it to me now and then, but I usually ignore its pleas. Still, I have to admit the café-racer look appeals to me and, as long as it didn’t affect the function of the bike, I decided to dip a toe in the... Read more »

I’m at that age where the things I enjoyed when I was younger exert an irresistible pull on me. One result of this is that I bought a 2012 Triumph Bonneville earlier this year.
