You cry-babies...

Forget the name "goober" - thats bloody marketing-speech to make a new kind of bike sellable. If people do not know how to call - how can they speak about it?

I am sure thats it will be one hell of a bike, the engine is great and they tried to make it more rideable then poor old Amis and Speedies which where made to satisfy the american market - thats why it was called Bonneville America.

The design ist not saying "Bobber" it is screaming out lod "5t" and "Heritage" and "SpeedTwin" (that name is also reserved by Triumph, so wait for whats coming).

Look at this old beauty and say to the new one "Its not a Bobber, it's a Triumph, Baby"

All her stuff? Where are you going to put her or you if she's doing the driving?

I like it. It has the classic rear triangle and a fine line from the rear axle to the neck. Very nice.

My thoughts exactly.
Us fat blokes will look a little out of place on one I think.
All the images and videos show pretty young things with perfect teeth, coiffured hair and they all seem to have the ideal lifestyle.
Granted, some bloke watching tv on the sofa in his wife beater supping a six pack of beer isn't going to sell bikes but a little more realism wouldn't hurt now, would it?
You know, blokes like Dave and Steve meeting at the café for a cuppa and a bacon sarny rather than Atticus and Lazlo (without the 's' of course), meeting up for an organic
tofu and kale smoothy topped off with a parmesan foam!!





As I said, I'm growing to like it, but it needs some sort of rear seat/pillion pad or at least something to attache bags/stuff to the rear end.

It's not a touring bike for pillions and camping trips.
As a second bike to go out for a thrash with your mates, it's ideal.
Anyway, if you need to carry a mobile, keys and spare glasses etc, something like this will fit that swingarm ...

I like the look. I would have stuck some old school cocktail shakers on it, the pipes look too modern.

I didn't mean a whole grand poobah touring seat with all the bells and whistles, just a small pillion pad.Big enough to give someone a lift to the pub or to strap a small bag on.Yes the side bag is good and I read somewhere Triumph will have them as accessories.
