History
I went into the dealer to look at a Thruxton and fell in love with the America. He had an 08 and 09 sitting side by side. I bought the 08 for about $1,000 less than the 09 and used the savings to improve the handling and performance of my 08. This is my "toss around" bike for up in the mountains, yet it cruises freeways and works will in city traffic. I love it.
