ROAD TEST 1979

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:3">The Triumph Bonneville has traditionally been held responsible for
everything from keeping Harleys out of winner's circles to keeping small-town
daughters locked up. But nowadays a new kind of fantasy surrounds the
well-known curves of the Bonnie the fantasy of a machine from an earlier,
simpler age. And even if those over 25 can hardly consider the Fabulous Fifties
an age of simplicity, whenever the conversation turns to Triumphs the talk
inevitably turns nostalgic.

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:3">But so overwhelming is the flood of techno marvels from Japan that
most enthusiasts probably think that even this latest Bonnie is simply the old
one dolled up in new powder and paint. No so: In the biggest single change
since the bike got its 747cc engine in 1970, the Amal concentric carburetors
have been chucked out, to be replaced with a pair of far more modern Amal Mk
IIs. Mikuni-like, they eliminate much of the hassle of the old Bonnies, since
they have a single lever-type choke and excellent flow characteristics enhanced
by parallel intake tracts. Other changes include the use of
"inverted" Girling gas shocks, Dunlop K81/ TT100 tires front and rear
(in place of the old squarish K70s) and redesigned side covers.

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:3">First there's the phenomenal Triumph handling, a thing so unique
it's been a cornering yardstick used by motojournalists for over a decade.
Indeed, it's that very familiarity with the Bonneville's handling that's bred a
certain contempt for it, especially among Triumph marque freaks.

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:3">What makes Bonneville handling so special today—in the era of
monsterbikes—is its effortless precision. This is a motorcycle whose pegs your
grandmother could drag, not because they're too lowbut because the bike
combines magic qualities of suspension geometry, frame stiffness and mass
placement in such a way that no steering input seems to require much effort.
This is something we tested further than normal, since we replaced the standard
handlebar—an egregious cryptochopper affair totally incongruous among the clean
lines of the bike—with an optional ($16) European handlebar with which all
domestic Triumphs are equipped. And riding efforts with either bar were
precisely the same: so low you only need think the bike through a corner.
