Over the last five years or so the retro cafe movement has really picked up momentum. Both Ducati and Triumph have brought out lines of bikes to echo that golden era of motorcycling from the mid 60's to the very early 70's. It has gone so far that people are dragging old Honda CB550 and 750's, Kawasaki H1 and H2 etc out of the basement, fixed them up and added touches so that that they wouldn't look out of place down at The Ace Cafe getting ready to do a ton up run.
Triumph had their demo fleet in town over the weekend and we got a chance to take a ride on the Thruxton. This is a bike that we have liked for a while from a looks standpoint but have been reserving judgement on till we could take it for a spin.
We liked it, and we think you will too, have a look!
