BUT DO IT IN STYLE WITH A TRI­UMPH BON­NEVILLE BOB­BER BLACK

If you’re start­ing to feel the first twinges of early mid-life panic, you have more choices at your dis­posal in 2018 than any age of man be­fore. Retro vinyl­col­lect­ing, ul­tra-fit­ness, mind­ful­ness med­i­ta­tion, food trucks. If any­thing, there’s too much for a pur­pose-seek­ing male to de­cide on (see point on mak­ing de­ci­sions), so maybe it’s best to play the clas­sics and just get a mas­sive mo­tor­bike in­stead. This new Tri­umph could be right up your street — a Bon­neville Bob­ber that’s been specif­i­cally tweaked to look mean, dark and slightly crim­i­nal. Your only paint choice is matte black or jet black with the painted body­work parts ei­ther glossy or not. It’s got mas­sive tyres, an even more mas­sive 1,200cc en­gine and a (sin­gle-seat) rid­ing style that won’t trig­ger your sci­at­ica. It bridges the gap be­tween mod­ern re­li­a­bil­ity and vin­tage style, gives off the im­pres­sion you may even tinker with it on Sun­day morn­ings and will per­fectly com­ple­ment that tat­too you won’t end up get­ting. Stereo­types are true for a rea­son.

From £11,500, out early Jan­uary;
