Because it will be the first one I take with a paid-off bike!! The 24th and final payment will be automatically drafted via some banking magic while I sleep, so when I wake up, she's all mine:D

I'm going to be extra extra careful- Murphy's Law and all.

Got a really great interest rate two years ago, so decided to finance half, and invest the other half in a nice little mutual fund that I bought at $26.30, and closed at $40.80 today. Not a bad 2 year gain in this economy.. So not only did it cost me nothing to finance- I actually made $$ on the purchase!

The moral of the story is, buying a Triumph Bonneville will bring you the admiration of your peers, untold pleasure and wealth... Everyone should do it.

As far as I'm concerned, when it comes to what you get for the $, the Bonneville can't be beaten. One of the best values on the road bar none.

I caught a great break, everything came together some sort of cosmically good way and the $4500 I financed ended up turning into about $7k before subtracting the couple of hundred bucks I paid in interest.

Me buying this glorious machine was a meant to be type of cosmic phenomenon. I guess all those years of banking good Karma finally paid off for once!

Congratulations! It is, indeed a beautiful ride. I've been interested in the T100 for some time now. I'm struggling between the America and the T right now. I've scheduled a test ride for when I come in from offshore, so hopefully that will help me decide but I'd be proud and thrilled to have either one. Enjoy it...it's all yours now!!

Congrats!
Enjoy that interest free ride. I have a standing rule that I never finance a toy (essentially that is what a motorcycle is) I will always pay cash for a bike, and buy used (if possible)
Once of the main reasons being that up here in the northeast, the Winter can make that bike sit in the garage for a looooong time. Nothing sux more than paying interest on something and not being able to use it!

Cheers mate - Enjoy that bonnie.

Well today's the day - how does it feel
For some reason, I managed to get "Ton-up" a lot faster than the other 3 times I've gone there.. I figured if Murphy's law applied, I might as well max out on speed. Like I've ALWAYS said, get over 4k on the tach, and hold on to your freaking hat!!!!!
