Just great Marlon!
This isn't the sort of info one is ever likely to get from a Cycle World or Motorcyclist Online review, and much more entertaining.

Such an unbiased review is refreshing, hmmm... smell that? The air smells just a bit sweeter.

Put me down as a fan.

I like the Gizmag Multi Review as well. We need more of this stuff.

Superb video and review! Well done! I know a couple of owners of late model Bonnevilles and it's as if they are AFRAID to admit to anything less than stellar about their motorcycles ... they are Triumph after all!
LOL!! Thanks again for your unbiased honesty ... I still think the Bonneville is a good and a good-looking Bike ...

I've wanted a Bonneville for a long time, test rode one a couple of years ago, and this review just strengths my desire. Thanks for an honest take on the bike.

Hilarious. I subbed to your channel because I want more of this flavor of caustic honesty.

'great piece & thanks for posting. As a current Bonneville owner and a W650 owner before that, I think most of limits on these bikes are price-point related (suspension etc) and the difficulty in putting new tech in an old tech-styled platform. Most of issues can be fixed tho and as you point out, there are quite a few after market bits for the Bonnie in particular to dial it in. What these bikes are really good at tho is taking you back to a simple standard that does not look like a jet ski. They are not paritcularly great at anything but pretty good at most things and that flexiblity has its charms. I currently own 3 other bikes each of which is designed to do one thing very, very well. If I'm just mucking about tho, I always go for the Bonnie.
