Black Bonnie

As of this Thursday, I will be the very proud owner of one gorgeous 2006 Triumph Bonneville Black. This is, with the exception of some crazy chopper I'll never have, my dream bike. I mean, if it's good enough for Steve McQueen, right?

I can't wait to ride it (first around the neighborhood, then to the coffee shop, then to work, and so on...). I also look forward to tricking it out with some of these sweetass accessories from Triumph's new sixty8 line.

Mad props to Erik for convincing Matthew at Foothills BMW/Triumph (with whom I could talk for days!) to shave a few dollars off the deal (I suck at negotiating...) and for being general moral support. And for getting me started on riding bikes in the first place!
