As I hacked my way through Perth's traffic on my morning commute, it suddenly occurred to me just how many Hinckley Triumph Bonneville variants I'm currently seeing in use as everyday commuters. I must see half a dozen regularly, just on my own commuting route. As such, they easily outnumber pretty much every other bike model that I can recognise. The only things that even run them close are various flavours of Hyo taken collectively and a plethora of BMW boxers ditto. Is this just a Perth thing (or even a me thing) or has anyone else noticed it? I can certainly see the virtues in the Triumph twin for everyday use. Torquey, tractable engine, slimmish dimensions, not too heavy, decent fuel economy and no super-wide (hence expensive) soft compound rubber. On the downside, I can see cleaning being a biatch, but maybe it's not that significant 'cos I don't do it and the average Bonnie buyer seems to be the sort of pervert who enjoys it .
