I know that the Triumph can roll along at any sane speed, but have any of you gone this same route?
I moved from an FJR to a Bonnie. I enjoyed the FJR and all the Tupperware and storage. The weight and it's less than friendly short hop around town issues got me looking. (not that I needed a reason to look at bikes)
I really enjoy the bike it is simple to maneuver and set up how you would like. It has it's issues but nothing $$$ can't fix.
It is NOT any of you previous bikes.
For me it brought back that feeling I first got 40 years ago. Or put another way I had to work at reasons to ride the FJR less than 40 miles in any one direction, short rides were work. With the Bonnie it may take two trips to the hardware store instead of one on the FJR.
SO what,more sMiles put on the bike.
