Eliminate those things and you're in a car, so you may as well just drive a car then. Thats one of the biggest reasons that society is the stuffy boring existence it's become today...in the pursuit of perfection, safety, etc, we've created a lifeless boring society. Sometimes there has to be some bad with the good or life ain't worth living.

Dazco,

Agree!!!!! How long have you had that pent up for......lol.

sgl0226,

I have both an '08 Bonneville and a '11 Storm. Wait 'till you ride both of yours back to back. Makes you appreciate them all the more. Does a bike have SOUL? Why many of us will forgo the niceties, plushness, and all the bells and whistles for a ride w/ SOUL. Lucky for us that both the Bonnie, and the Tbird have oodles of it. Almost like both bikes were dipped in a tank of it. Hard to explain until it takes your breath away, or makes you smile ear to ear.
I rode the TBird last night for about an hour. Just before I got home I went past a restaurant/bar that was having a small bike night. I got home, jumped on the Bonnie and went back to the bar. Not many people there but they all had something to say about the Bonnie. What a fun night!
