That doesn't sound remotely like the '06 Lightning Ss I had. Not familiar with the older Buells, but certainly not symptoms associated with an XB model. Maybe the 500cc Blast..... it's quite a...

Ha ha, he said he'd burn it. I don't think there was mention of making a claim on it. If I remember correctly, Mr. Cob has a history with incendiaries... maybe just a touch of pyromania? :lol3

Color me schooled. I was unaware of a lot of those (non-colored). So, not 70 years old, but still certainly not modern. Anyone got a timeline on when the other changes took place? I assume the...

With a limitless budget, sure, that would be great. Ural makes, what, roughly 2000 bikes a year? That's can't translate to a lot of income for development. I think a lot of people see Ural as this...

If you're basing your vehicle purchase on the Internet behavior of people you will more than likely never meet... well, good luck with that. :up

Seriously? The list would be a lot shorter the other way around.

The parts NOT a 70 year old design: electronic ignition, front disk brake, electric starter, alternator. Just because the materials...

Holy cow, I think I read the specs wrong. A Bonneville has a wet weight of 495 lbs. The V7 has a wet weight of 395 lbs. That's a 100 lbs less!!! :eek1

Haha, amen to that! The Ural is an awesomely cool machine, no doubt, but oftentimes I just don't have the leisure time that it takes to get from A to B on that thing. Sometimes, ya really just need...

6' even, 'bout 180 lbs. There was really nothing wrong with the Bonnie persay, but compared to the Thruxton, the chair-like position and proximity to the ground didn't feel as comfortable to me as a...

Cool, I have relatives out there! I checked up on the V7. Probably my favorite looking bike, but it weighs about the same as the Bonnie with 15 fewer ponies that the 650, which is considerable when...

Now THAT'S exactly what I've been looking for. I thought maybe the Ninja was more of a do-all (based on the promotional vids, anyway), but sounds like that's not the case. Thanks for the input!...

Not really. They look SWEET, no doubt about that, but I've always heard they're a PITA when it comes to maintenence, and I've never even seen a dealer. I suppose there should be one in Atlanta (I'm...

Heh, yeah, that's the thing; I had a Buell XB12Ss before the Ural. I don't take small steps, apparently. :D

Honestly though, I'm a bit more on the conservative side, which is one of the reasons I...

Split personality: 2012 Ninja 650 or Bonneville?

Hey guys! I'm in the market for a different bike (currently riding a 2010 Ural T), and I've settled on one of two machines: a 2012 Ninja 650, or a 2012 Bonneville. They're practically the same price,...
