I'm 5'7" and weight 160lbs (70 kgs) so I don't want something too i have shortish arms. I like the classic look and feel and have narrowed it down to the Bonneville SE's, T100, possibly the America's and a Thruxton from 2005-2008 years. My purpose will mostly be weekend rides with the occasional commute. My partner will also join me on the weekend rides.

Would appreciate any feedback...comfort is really important.

I'm similar height and weight to you, also carry a pillion from time to time. Go for the Bonneville, SE, T100, forget the America and Thruxton.
