How does the XR compare to a new Triumph Bonneville? Obviously, the torque is much better on the Harley, but the Bonneville oozes style and can easily be hopped up handling wise. I'm wondering about general comfort, fun factor and reliability. I have been wanting a Bonneville forever, but every time I stare at the XR -- especially the 1200x, with the blacked-out motor -- I feel a little flutter!
