New poster... Long time lurker

Hey, guys. I'm Dave from Arlington, VA. I grew up here, but bought my first (well all five) motorcycle(s) in Texas while I was living there teaching band in Houston and Fort Worth. I wanted an S3 for a bit, but ended up with a VTX, a Monster, an FZ1, and now two V-maxes (one sort of works, the other needs work).

Anyway. My wife has decided that she wants her own bike instead of always being on the back. We're going to get a wing for touring, or maybe a k1600gtl. But she saw a Bonnie, and wants one. I'd love to actually pick up a pair if I could. They just look awesome, fit us great, and all that.

So I'm here still lurking, but will be posting and looking for the right buy on a used bonnie over the next few months. I don't even really care if it's carbed or FI. So that's it, guys.

Thanks, guys. I like the explorers, too. I just feel like a midget getting on an off. We'll probably end up with a pair of bonnies.

The bonnies are great but don't rule out the Trophy SE for touring. We love ours!

A pair of Bonnies...oh the possibilities. With four variants to choose, it would be fun to mix and not match. Like a T100 and Scrambler, or a mag wheel and Thruxton. Good luck finding the right ones for you. And join some of the rides/events by DC Triumph. Find us on Facebook.
