Thinking of renting a bike and doing some riding in the USA? The large spaces, open roads and lower speed limits of America (versus Europe) encourage a laid back riding style, which is one of the reasons why Harley Davidson motorcycles are so popular. The vintage feel of a Harley transports you back to a simpler time, and cruising down Route 66, you have to remind yourself it’s not 1955. It’s a time machine on two wheels.

The Triumph Bonneville is a superb modern vintage-styled bike

But what if your black and white memories of the 50’s travel back to Cafe Racers, to British Iron, to rockers, Eddie Cochran, Steve McQueen and the Ace Cafe? Well then, you have to rent a Triumph Bonneville. With similar horsepower to the bigger Harleys, but with a 200+ pound weight advantage, the Triumph is a more spirited, nimble ride. Of course there’s little wind and weather protection, and the Bonnie is not as comfortable as the HD on longer, sustained high speed roads (65-70 mph). But there’s a simplicity to the Bonneville, a minimalism that makes for a more adventurous-feeling ride. You have to carry less, as there is little or no luggage capacity on the Bonneville. And the standard seat can be a bit hard on tender bottoms (bicycle riders will find it quite plush). Pillions will find the Bonnie hard work on longer days.

We’ve ridden the Bonneville on tighter roads, especially in Northern California, and it was quite a bit less work than any of the Harleys. Ground clearance is better on the Bonnie, and with 200 pounds less weight, transitioning from side to side is something you think about and it happens. The engine note, riding position and overall feel of the Triumph Bonneville are authentically 1950’s/1960’s British, and the bikes have bulletproof reliability.

British iron works well on America roads

Imagine yourself on the Bonnie, twisting down the eight hairpin turns of Lombard Street in San Francisco. Or heading down Santa Monica Boulevard through Hollywood, headed out to the Pacific Coast to dip your toes in the water. Or perhaps stopping in Oatman, Arizona on Route 66, parking your Triumph outside the Oatman Hotel, and going inside to see the room where Clark Gable and Carole Lombard stayed on the first night of their honeymoon. Or perhaps you’d like to journey across America on a Bonneville, ride Coast To Coast?

Unleash your inner McQueen

The Triumph Bonneville is available in limited supply and only in select EagleRider locations, here’s the list:

EagleRider Los Angeles, California

EagleRider Miami Beach, Florida

EagleRider Chicago, Illinois

EagleRider Albuquerque, New Mexico

EagleRider Richmond, Virginia

It is possible to have a Bonnie transported to a EagleRider agent pickup location of your choice for an additional fee. If you’re interested in hiring a Triumph Bonneville in America, and want the most competitive rate possible,  please contact us!

      It’s a big country and a great ride Tony, no matter which route you choose. I’ve done it twice and it was completely different both times.
