Brand new rider checking in!
I've just passed the MSF BRC and is currently in the process of getting my licence!. I have decided that i would get the Thruxton or the Bonnieville as a first bike. What are your thoughts on that? And what is the biggest differences between them that sets them apart, other than the seat cowl.?
I'm 6 foot and about 190 lbs and like i said before, a brand new rider. Ive browsed around the forums and to my knowledge, there are many taller riders that are comfortable with the bike. I have yet to sit on one but i plan on visiting the dealer as soon as i can.
Ive also been looking around for some Thruxton's and Bonnies on craigslist and Ebay and i have to say, they are pretty rare to find used.
I hope to learn alot more about these bikes and gain as much experience riding as i can!
Thanks for any info you provide!
