A Classic

You never know what you will discover when wandering in a laneway. I spotted this Triumph T120 Black recently and even though it looks vintage it is a newer model. The owner told me that it has been ridden from Vancouver to Toronto last year and from Toronto to Nova Scotia a couple of times so it is not just a pretty bike but a real workhorse too. I like the vintage look of the license on the front fender.

The big front disc is the give away, the original had a drum break

Wow, that is very impressive. Those trips are both pretty long distance. I'm trying to imagine riding a motorcycle those long distances.

Thgat's a great looking bike. I used to love riding on when I was younger.

Very cool! I like where the license plate sits, I've never seen that before.

This motorcycle has a classic look, but the big disk brakes give it away as contemporary. Fine looking bike. I've ridden old, original Triumph Bonnivilles back in the day.

...Triumphs were popular in the '60s when I was in high school.

It may have done some long distance trips but it looks like it's been well loved and cared for. So great that you learned its history!
I had a boyfriend with a motorcycle long, long ago. I got so cold riding on the back that I my teeth started chattering when he showed up at the front door to take me out.
