The Question of questions regarding Bonnevilles...
Hello all, i am happy to have found this site, got a feeling i'll be spending some time here. I've dreamed about owning a Bonneville since i was a kid watching my older brothers taking them apart in the garage, sometimes they even got put back together, ha!
Seriously though, this is my time, i've finally gotten myself to a place where i am going to do it now, the only question is, which Bonneville? I've read a bit about the 03s to the 06s being better built, less plastic, as they were still being made in England, is this true? My local dealer is blowing out 2009s for 7k with zero miles on them while many older bikes i see for sale are close to or over 7k so, what gives? Have they recently dropped prices? I mean, besides the end of the year discount, which is what i think dropt it by nearly 1k which is sweet. Ok, enough questions, sorry...
And thanks in advance!
