    Hey everyone, fresh newbie here!
    I've been wanting my own motorcycle since my first ride on a dirt bike when I was a teenager. I've always loved the look of the bikes from the 70's, so it's no surprise I ended up with a Bonneville T100!

    Also, is there any good resources for parts catalog/list for the 2022 T100? I can't seem to find anything newer than 2020.

    Welcome to the family. Great intro and terrific picture of a great bike. The inmates here in the asylum will love that picture. And nursey will get her rounds done quickly now. As for accessories there is not much change and parts from around 20018 on will probably go straight on your bike.
    Joe.

    Pretty bike! Cosmetically, I'd leave it as is. Welcome to the forum.

    It certainly is a beautiful motorcycle right from the factory, and I do plan to keep it mostly stock other than some utility stuff like a rear rack.

    Thanks for the link, Dartplayer, much appreciated. They have the center stand listed that I've been trying to find! For some reason I couldn't find it through Google to save my life

    Hi Jay welcome to the asylum you should fit right in. The only thing you need to change is the colour To BLACK as it will go faster. Screenshot_20210115-000542_Chrome.jpg Screenshot_20200606-032527_MeWe.jpg Tucker

    Thanks, Sandi! Feels good to finally have my own. I'm from New Hampshire, so sadly I've already had to put her away for the winter. It's a shame to have to do it before I can ride, but gives me something to look forward to in the spring!

    We are glad to see you here in the family. Here you have just joined the best Triumph and many other bikes forum around in my honest opinion. Don't forget you need a nice set of fruity end cans on there to really make you smile and free up the power.
    Joe.

    Jay, sorry to know that winter is kicking in in your part of the U.S. and that you won't even be able to ride your new bike. :( But what a great opportunity savor those feelings of anticipation! ;):joy:

    In the meantime you can polish that Bonnie to your hearts content. And figure out all the cool things you want to do to it or add to it. :heart_eyes: I got a new motorcycle in May of 2020 and couldn't ride it until September of 2020 due to a bicycle accident. But I tried to make the best of it. I got my hands on the big thick 2020 Harley-Davidson Parts and Accessories Catalog and poured over it as if it was the Sears Christmas Wish Book if you're old enough to remember that. :rolleyes::D By the time I was healed up enough to ride that bike I had everything done to it that I wanted and haven't made any changes since (yet). ;)
