i definitely hear ya.
i wish the base bonneville came with an 18 inch front instead of the 17.
wouldnt mind having a tach, but that can always be added very easily. just not a necessity.
i also would love dual front disk brakes.
and shaft drive would be amazing (not as easy to swap gear ratios, but the maintenance factor is HUGE)
and they should come STANDARD with a damn centerstand
for me, the bike was the closest thing i could get to a classic bike (my bmw r80 **** the bed, and i don't care for modern bikes) without getting another classic bike. until i got a car 2 weeks ago, i rode ONLY, and piled on 3k ish a month, and my 30 yr old beemer was not too thrilled and i was always having to tinker.
