I like standards. I have European Taste. I have owned a Honda ST1100 for 13 12 years. The Research / owner feedback on the Triumph Triples were very good. Here is my experience. Bought My Triumph 2nd hand with 30,000 miles on it this Spring 2012 The first week I fell over because I have this specific routine I must do to park a bike in this small area at work. I have owned dozens of bike..but for the first time...the steering maxed out and hit the steering stop which gave me just enough of a... (read more)

The Adventurer was made in 1996. The bike is basically a "derivative" of Thunderbird model.The bike is "uncommon" enjoying the unusual attention not only to devotees of classic lines.Resembling rather on a kruizer styled bike , recalls motorcycles from the time of the end of the 60s and the mid-70s years. Equipped with generous chrome plating, high handlebars, lower lying solo seat, massive rear fenders and exhaust - like a megaphone, placed on both sides of the motorcycle.
On a steel... (read more)

The Triumph Adventurer is one bad ass bike. Distintive looks, handling is phenominal, cruiser ride with rocket cornering, speed and power are perfect. I have been riding rice burners for a while now and this bike impresses the most for commuting and 150 mile jaunts. (read more)

My Adventurer now has 90,000 k's on the speedo...Very enjoyable to ride, find the "very dark" plastic water tank impossible to see into, unless the tank is removed then remove the cap?? Why do the two tank lugs that lock onto the bike have sharp square edges? its very easy to puncture the water tank when fitting the tank, so easily fixed with a little filing...To me the bike has to much chrome, my bike now looks excellent with flat handlebars most of the chrome is now Satin Black, side...

I have done many miles (kms) on my 97 registered Triumph Adventurer and apart from a very occassional (and undetected) ignition problem causing lack of power (temporary cut out of 1 or 2 pots) had no problems. It reminds me of the 68 Bonneville I had as a kid except bigger in all directions. Gives good mpg on a medium throtlle, is over-engineered (like all Triumphs 1st Generation machines) . As an Engineer, this bike appeals to me because it does all the right things, reasonable... (read more)

Engine! Engine! Engine! This motor makes great, silky-smooth power and torque! The rear shock is harsh. Fit a $25 ZX7 shock and all is good. A great looking and performing blast from the past! (read more)

I have to say that despite the shortcomings of the Triumph Adventurer, I still love it. It has the classic styling that gets attention from other bikers,has reasonable handling and is dependable with more that enough power to get you where your going. Change the mufflers to T-bird cans and custom fit Leatherlike bags I found on ebay that obscure the ugly bobbed rear fender with all the standard chrome and racked front forks this bike comes with. The bike has looks that could kill. (read more)
