This may very well be the best new motorcycle in any category for 2010!
By Robert Richhart(Enthusiast), Sep. 9, 2009
Just brought home a new black Thunderbird after owning a Triumph America for a short while.... Before that I had been riding metric street rockets so the whole cruiser arena was a stretch for me.... The new TBird may technically be a cruiser, but after riding one for a while you might easily start t... Read Full Review

Test Ride
By Freddy(Enthusiast), Jan. 9, 2010
As a new rider, I've been trying to stay on "the beaten path" as far as cruisers are concerned, and never considere Triumph until just a couple of days ago. I ride both a Yamaha Star 950 and a Suzuki Intruder 1400, and having ridden on a 2010 Fat Bob and a Super Glide Custom in my comparis... Read Full Review

Don't want to stop riding
By S. Steel(Owner), May. 25, 2010
Just came home with a new 2010 Triumph Thunderbird, and I didn't want to come home. Been riding for two hours around the city and on back roads and the bike has no flaws. It's fast, it handles well, it stops quickly, and the seat is comfortable. I test road a Harley Sportster 1200 and the Dyna Su... Read Full Review

Excellence
By Mark(Owner), Jul. 26, 2010
Ridden many over many miles - some are cool standing still... much less so on the move. Others have too much vibe, too little brakes, too much heat ad nauseum.



The Thunderbird though - a 20 mile test ride will have you smiling all the way to your pocketbook and after. It looks cool - has great... Read Full Review
