This is my 1969 Triumph. Had it for many years and great fun on the back roads around Mt Macedon area. Holds her own on the freeways able to comfortably sit on the speed limit 2 up.


I had a 69 Bonne, purchased it brand new.
Great bike.

Still are great bikes mate.
Spent Melbourne Cup weekend camped at Broadford for the Southern Classic. Lots of Triumphs racing, especially in the sidecars. I have a mate that races a sidecar, so does his father and 2 brothers. 4 of the same family racing pre-unit Triumphs.
Cheers & Beers

Yeah I bet they are Rob, still kicking myself for getting rid of it but I had a girlfriend that hated bikes so the bike had to go, still got the girlfriend albeit she is now the wife of forty something years. Did two of the Sunbury concerts on the bike, bloody good times they were

Bought in August, ostensibly for my birthday!!
Previously had a R1150RS and loved it. This one is a lot more of everything, except luggage and fuel.

This shot was taken on the way home from the Thunder rally at Nundle, NSW.

Have to be honest and admit to only having used it a couple of times so far. Too old fashioned mentally to be downshifting without the clutch🤗

Hey good on you. I would be the same but a couple of mates rave about it.

A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

Lots of good times in front of you with that bike.
Be very careful though, once you have bought one BMW R series, there is no end to the number of them you will accumulate. I got to 5 in the shed, but the wife got a bit peeved. I have cut back to 4 only, with two 1200’s, an RT and an ST (both 2006), needing to be moved on.
Out of 4 very good friends, only one has a single BMW R series.
