Follow ups in the works

Thank you for bringing that to my attention. I may try to make it. I live in Richmond and it would make a nice ride. My vintage bike isn't ready, but I can ride my new Bonneville.

A real man's motorcycle

I suspect that it takes real balls to ride something like that the way it needs to be ridden. I also suspect that one should wear a cup on those balls.:eek1

The pretty ones can be trouble...but worth it...sometimes.

A 1968 Bonneville is a desirable bike. Those handlebars don't look original to me and the parcel grid on the tank is an add on. British bikes are a special breed. Some Bonneville aficionados would...
