Love those Ducati twins without a doubt!
The more I see of the new model Bonnevilles and Thruxtons the more I like them, they did a great job of combining the classic Triumph look in a modern motorcycle.
Rode over to the local Triumph /Ducati shop last weekend to check 'em out and saw a Thruxton in mild cafe trim getting tuned after installing some Dunstall style megaphone exhausts that looked and sounded awesome!
Here's a shot of my 305, I combined the best parts from a rough runner with a donor flooded bike, did a top end job on the engine with a couple of engine mods to keep it interesting and ended up with a very nice rider.
I'm going to use the left over stuff to build a rat bike, street racer style bike with a full house engine that I've started gathering up parts for.
It'll be fun!
