Another bonneville rider

Greetings! Been looking to get another bike for some time, and kinda liked the Triumph classic looks, not a cruiser, won't get me in trouble like a sportbike. Just something a little different.

I've been watching craigslist and ebay for Triumphs, getting an idea for prices and such. Well last week I found a 2009 Bonneville on craigslist. I hadn't seen one in person, and was concerned about them being small for me. Not a big guy, but 6' tall. The guy let me take it for a test ride, and shortly after the first corner I could see myself riding this quite a bit. Bit the bullet and bought it.

Been doing lots of lurking on these and other forums trying to learn as much as I can, but here's the first post so I can start asking questions!

Look its very easy to buy a bike..........if it has a Triumph badge on it, buy it.

You have made the right choice, a Bonnie is a superb bike

Be warned, a Bonnie is for life............if you every consider selling it you will feel ashamed, weak and only a part man............then the urge passes and you make the vow, till death us do part

By the way welcome from the mad Englishman
