Triumph Demo Day at Ace Motosports



Triumph Demo Day at Ace, originally uploaded by Speedy Chung.
Thank you Ace and Triumph USA putting the event together. There was about 20 demo bikes available for test ride - pretty much full line of current Triumph products. I was plan to check out the Street Triple and Tiger 1050; but the line was too long and the spots filled up quickly. End up I got the Bonneville SE and Scrambler. Both bikes are really down-to-earth kind of ride - raw and simple. Bonneville is fun in an odd way - very very slow, and I actually can relax hitting redline (to the point.... falling asleep?). Scrambler is just fun - the pipes give a very special exhaust tones (sounds like a very very angry duck!). It has more kicks than Bonneville; but the brake on both bikes are equally bad. I really don't think I will ever get one of these bikes... but hey, no one should say never...

There are still day two! I wonder I have time after the Ducati Rider Portrait’s Photo Project opening reception in Sunnyvale Art Gallery....
