I love my new bonne, it looks fantastic and sounds better, I had one 30 years ago, a heap of*****, though I loved every thing about it.
Tell me about yours,
What you have tricked up so far and want to do in the future
Yeah, Triumph twins get you like that. I had a T140V, absolutely loved it, but it had to go, bought a house etc. etc. anyway I had the bones of a 1955 T110 which I eventually put back together, fantastic bike but not up to modern traffic conditions, brakes etc. Bought a Tbird sport, great bike but not for me, 2 cylinders are enough. Bought a Bonneville T100, yes, this is it , love it, all the fun of a T140V but none of the hassles. I don't think I will ever want another bike, still got the T110 though.

Had a Harley Clone Honda rider come over to me at the gas station today & say he like my restored Bonnie. I told him it was 2006. F&R discs, 900 CC, electronic ignition, 4 valves per cylinder, overhead cams. He was impressed. I couldn't think of one thing to ask him about his bike. I didn't even compliment it. I felt bad.
I also like to ride my CL350 Honda some times. But just a short distance.
