Hi from South Africa

Hi everyone, Marco here from South Africa. Just recently bought my first Triumph, got the Bonneville Bobber in Jet Black.


Loving the Bike, was a previous Harley owner, and glad I've made the move over to the Triumph family. 😁

Welcome to the site! Any changes to the bike planned yet?

Each one matters.

Thank guys. Planning on doing a few Mods.

Would like to tidy up the back fender, ordered the black quilted seat, and short front fender. Woukd like to black out the bike as much as possible.

Considering throwing on a 160 tire on the back. Would love to do the 180 wide conversion from canyon motorcycles, but just to expensive to import into South Africa with our current exchange rate.

I assume i can do a 160 wide on back on stock rim. Anyone know if i will have any issues with handling if i do?

If i don't do the 160 rear, i wi def throw on a set of white walls.
