EMBRACE A CRISIS CLICHÉ
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;
