Something to let me tinker with without requring £1000's worth of special tools!
In addition to which it reminds me of how much I really love modern brakes!

Traded my H-D for a Triumph Bonneville T120. Looking forward to doing a few miles on it over the summer 😊

Very nice Simbo. I only took a short spin on the 850 Bonnie and loved that engine. More displacement has got to be a hoot! Congrats!

For those of you who have more than an RT, how about adding to this thread with some photos too.

This is the most recent (2018) photo of my 1980 Yamaha XJ650.

This is the XJ650 in touring mode, circa 20 years ago.

Two of my Panthers (the other is still a WIP rebuild). A bit "different" to my R1250RT, but I still enjoy riding them.

That's a Factory version, right? IIRC those blue wheels are forged.
