I wasn't able to picture anything after closing my eyes...
Mutineer, your bike with the M-bars, hows that affect the handling and comfort of the bike vs say a standard handle bar setup?
Damn sexy bike.
Here's my 04 Bonneville.
Very nice. How and where did you get the Excel wheels swapped? One of the best modded new bonnies i've seen.
I need to see more of this one.
I've got a dirty bonnie! I clearly spend more time riding it than cleaning it.
here's another pic of my dirty bonnie
it sounded so good in my head
now all I can see is one of the J.Crew ads
Yeah, that's where I went when I read it.
Cool bikes, though. I'm happy with my V-Strom, but if I had ridden a Bonnie first I might be riding one now.
I like them even more seeing the mods folks are doing to them.
Motorcycle Daily said all the Bonnies are going to have the T-100 based motor this year; presumably meaning they'll drop the 790. Anyone heard this anywhere else?
standard bar more comfy
M bars can't you forward a little but, but not a lot
at near highway speeds and above the wind on your chest keeps weight off your wrists
plus the Bonnie seats all allow a lot scoot room so scooting up close to the tank give you sit and beg posture and scooting back puts you in a cafe lean
I dig the bars and I typically prefer a sit up and beg posture like a Strom or my old F650
my biggest beef is the peg to seat length is too close for my 32 inch inseam
I see a set of the least ugly hway pegs I can find in my future
Lemme see what I can do about that..
you have it backwards on the mill
they are all getting the 865 motor with the 360 cranks
I had a Vstrom (DL1000) and sold it to get the coin for the Bonnie
Except the Scambler?
I thought that's what I said.
Does your black have the 790?
I rode a standard last summer. Felt like a motorcycle should. Or used to. Or something. Could be a little noisier, but they say the off-road pipes will fix that.
I believe the America and Scrambler have the 865, but with a 270 degree crank.
The only Bonneville pic I've got......taken Fri Sep 1st. in the middle of an 8200 mi 3 week trip with the old relic......the bike is old too.
Is there really a Bonneville in there somewhere?
