America America America!!!!
As stated in previous opinions, they are roughly the same bike, so if you did get the 'wrong one' a few parts off that well known auction site would have it as you want it.
when I knew what bike I wanted 'THE AMERICA' I had 3 months before delivery, so in that time I aquired a pair of TORs, screen, gel seat and rear rack, all at half price or less.
I went in the dealers to buy a Bonneville I sat on the full range but they all seemed 'small' I sat on the America and decided that this was the one, I was asked if I wanted a test ride, but I refused.
My first ride out on my America proved I had made the right decision, although the forward pegs do take a little getting use to , I would never go back to a normal bike.
The America or Speedmaster or any of the Bonneville bikes are idea as they are affordable and hold their value, ( look at the resale prices) they are economical, cheap to insure, relatively easy to work on, easy to clean and although not road rockets will keep up with most bikes driven at the legal speedlimits.
And it passes my pick up test, on occasions bikes have a tendency to how can I put, it fall over riders error or nature. The America is a easy lift by one person, last month I had to assist a rocket 3 rider wright his bike, after whilst manoevering he stepped in a hole and the bike fell over
I love the new 2011 america but cannot justify parting with my 2010 model.
