New Indiana rider, new 2013 Bonneville T100

After a few years of admiring the Scrambler/Thruxton/Bonnevilles I finally decided to purchase one. The Indianapolis dealer had one last new 2013 that they were clearing out, the price was great and they waived the shipping fees. All done I walked out of the dealer under $8k.

I also looked at Harley Sportsers and a coupe bikes from Honda, BMW, and Yamaha. I'm a bigger guy (300lbs.) and the bonneville carries me better than all of the other bikes I looked at.

I plan on keeping the bike mostly stock except for perhaps a windshield. Maybe slightly louder pipes.

My riding will be mostly pleasure riding. My work commute is about 65 miles each way with about 60 minutes of rush hour bumper to bumper expressway traffic, so that is out. I plan on a few weekend trips with a buddy on his KLR each year. Our first will be to northern michigan, Probably.
