Looking to buy my first motorcycle (standard) this winter/spring and wanted to join to get questions answered and soak up any advice. I have experience with modifying cars, turbo's and resell (all hobby's).
The retro style of the Bonneville, SE and T100 is what first got my attention. After researching more, it sounds as if triumph makes a quality, well engineered product.
Also been looking at other mid sized commuter bikes like the Suzuki sv650. The honda CB1100's plain jane look
also appeals to me (to give you a idea of style). Basically looking for a mid sized engine, reliable, combination of enough power but still good mpg's.
My questions so far would be:
1) Is there a good website for buying/looking for a used bonnie? Been combing CL and cycle trader some.
2) Whats the pro's and con's of the models that changed over to EFI vs the late model carb models?
3) Any specific years, or models to stay clear from?
4) From what i have stated so far is there any older honda's, yamaha's, suzuki's..ect that I should be looking into?
Just looking and learning for now, and would appreciate any advice.
