Hello

Hi,

I live in London Ontario. I've been riding my '06 Daytona 675 since June of 2008. I love everything about the ride, but my back and wrists are starting to complain more and more. I'm not sure I can take another season on it. So, I'm trying to choose between a Bonneville T100 or a Thruxton for next year. I thought this would be a good way to chat to other owners who could offer me some advice.

Welcome! Visit the Twins forums and ask. Although, I'm sure a Bonnie would be easier on what hurts than a Thrux. Good luck!

hi corhab-i just bought 2010 thruxton and they have higher bars and are really comfortable-test ride first as the performance will be really down on your 675-but it's still a fun bike to ride

That's good to hear. I was leaning more towards the Thruxton, but I was worried I'd be in the same boat, comfort-wise, as the Daytona. I still want a fun bike, but I also want my wrists not to be aching. The Bonneville looks really comfortable, but I thought it might be too much of a step down from the Daytona. I'm looking for a good mix of fun and comfort.
