I love my Thunderbird. Its the best bike I've ever ridden in my life, and I've owned a dozen bikes over 20 years. I wouldn't trade bikes with anyone on the planet.

Yet... my current computer wallpaper is a Bonnie.

In my opinion, the Bonneville is the Platonic form of 'motorcycle'. I think if you had every human being on the planet visualise 'motorcycle' and were able to render the sum aggregate of those imaginations on paper, you'd end up with ... a Bonneville. Its a true motorcycle in every sense of the word.

My dream stable?

A Triumph Thunderbird, a Bonneville and a Rocket III.

A streetfighter, a classic for exploring the town, and a monster for a mellow cross-country epic tour.

What if there were no hypothetical questions?
