As my imaginative title states, this is my grandpa's motorcycle! It's a 1977 Triumph Bonneville, in case anyone was wondering.

That is a beautiful motorcycle, looks like it is in great shape. That's that type of bike that I’m looking for now. The older bikes are much nicer then the new ones. Great photograph... best motorcycle art that I have seen on dA.

great framing, contrast and just the right accent on detail. I was about to change pages to browse through more artwork and this pic made me do a double take. Great!

Thats really awesome! My dad restores old British motorcycles, right now we only have the Bonneville, a BSA Thunderbolt and a BSA Star.

Sweet, my dad restores classic British mororcycles, too. We have the 8 Bonnevilles, a Norton, a Harley Sportster (you have to have one Harley, right?), and a classic Honda Goldwing minus the fairings.

Actually, we have absolutely no Harleys what-so-ever. Never have. We have a bunch of Honda and Yamaha trail bikes though, nine of them, I think. Do you ride at all?

Well, I ride a lot, but on the back seat while my dad drives. He doesnt think I can handle something as big as the Triumphs, so he's keeping an eye out for some little rice burner that he can "teach" me on. I think I could handle a Bonneville, but that's not for me to decide.
