At US$35.95 "New Bonneville" has the best price on available books in the USA.
Cheaper than even at the very Haynesonline Shop (the publisher) where it costs US$39.50 (£19.99)

I don’t know why "TheMotorBookstore" for a VERY LONG time announces the book at a dumping price of US$24.46 BUT marked “Sold Out”. Probably they just sold a few in the past for exposure purposes. :mad:

Did anybody here ever managed to get the book from them? :???:

I got mine from "Merlin" at the very same price as at “New Bonneville” (for me it was more convenient just because the shipping costs to Belgium from the UK are far much less than from the USA)

I'd be interested to know if anyone with the Haynes manual has found any errors in it. The Haynes manual for my last bike had a couple of basic mistakes - wrong value for main fuse (20A instead of 30A) and a valve clearance checking routine that failed to mention you should check the tappets for movement on the rear cylinder (Virago) before assuming you were at TDC on the compression stroke.

After spotting those, I took everything else the manual said with a pinch of salt and found myself checking torque values etc against the Clymer manual.
