Last week I stopped wanting a Bonneville when I took delivery of a 2020 T120 Diamond. I actually went to check out a Speed Twin not knowing the dealer had a Diamond in stock. When I saw it I was hooked. I added JBQ bar risers yesterday, next will be bar ends and a small tailbag. Exhaust will wait till spring because snow isn't far enough away.
I'm loving the bike so far. I'm coming off a big Indian but with most of my riding being close by it was a big heavy bike for my riding. Awesome bike but a big, heavy girl.

Damn good looking bike!

Can you post a closer picture of the risers? I’m thinking about a set.

Thanks

Congratulations!

I haven't owned a bazillion bikes, but enough to judge differences. The T120 has been my favorite of the ones I have ridden or owned. It doesn't do anything particularly well, but it will do anything you ask of it well enough to appreciate the experience.

Enjoy!

Very pretty. Think you will really like the T120. After60 years of riding (started at 12 on a Sears Moped) and having half-dozen since, its the most enjoyable ride I've had. I too looked at a Speed Twin, but I decided I certainly did not need any more power or torque and I like the T120 styling so much more! Full-wrap fenders have a classical look and are so, so, so much more practical. I also love the T120's pea-shooter silencers and the vintage-look tank badge. I chose the Black because it was a $4,000-off 2017 left-over, but the black is growing on me; I can always paint the tank and still be thousands ahead.

Thanks VABird. I tried uploading a pic earlier but it wouldn't go through.

I think the T120 will be with me for a good long while. It's plenty quick enough for my riding and the risers sit me upright a little more and make it very comfortable. All the colors are great and a black bike is always sharp but the pearl paint with the shiny bits really ring my bell. I have a JW Speaker Adaptive that I already had so I ordered the Motodemic adapter that should be here before the weekend. I stay out of the dark as much as I can but it's a great light at night.
