My wife loves these, my second bike was a '67 T100SR so they've got some nostalgia for me as well. The only thing I'm not 100% sure on is the different bonny models. As fas as I can tell:

New Bonneville: Basic model, blacked out engine.
Bonny T100: chrome engine covers, two tone paint on tank, spoked wheels, fork gaiters, rubber tank pads
New Bonny SE: polished engine covers, two tone paint, rubber tanks pdas

Perhaps I'm missing some other stuff? Couldn't find a 'compare' feature on the Triumph website..

Now if they just had a kickstart.... Do the peg rubbers still slide off on ya? ;-)

Bonneville -- Solid color tank, no tach, p-shooter exhaust sytem, 17" cast wheels F&R
Bonneville T100 -- 19" front wheel, 4 color choices, tachometer included, bullet exhausts
Bonneville SE -- "Retro" style tank colors, p-shooter exhaust, tachometer/speedometer, 17" cast wheels f&r.

There are a few other minor differences, but the differences can basically be summed up as trim-related (paint schemes, cast vs spoked wheels, wheel size, exhaust systems, chrome trim pieces on engine, instruments included).

Enjoy the search. They all have a bullet-proof engine.

Thanks. I read a couple reviews and I'm thinking one of these might be good for my wife, but not so good for me. Gotta check 'em out.. I'm 6'2" with a 35" inseam and about 250# I suspect I might be a tad cramped. Perhaps I'll have to get a tiger (ooh darn..... poor me ;-)
