That bike was built for me. I can't bring myself to trade in the Bonnie for it though. I will just wait till I can have both
Don't worry, I have Thunderbird, not a Bonnie, so I don't hang out and gossip on the Bonnie forum...

I ride for a living as a motorcycle cop, so I've got quite a few more miles then most and I know what I like. This bike is every bit an all rounder, unlike the Bonnie. It handles as well, cruises at highway speeds with ease, has gobs more torque and is a much better longer distance road bike. That's why it getting traded for the T-Bird.
Now THERES a recommendation ! Thanks VC. So often you try and tell people the Tbird is an all around great bike but many just refuse to believe it in one way or another. I think such a glowing description of the Tbird from someone who rides 8 hours a day for a living might have a pretty dependable opinion, dontcha all think?!

Now, down to business.....can ya help me out next time i get a speeding ticket?

Gorgeous! I just bought the exact same bike! BTW, Daytona Gear makes a "tank bag" that fits perfectly behind the headlamp cowling...

I know your having some fun on my behalf, so let me say this. Considering you're in Ca Daz and I'm not, I doubt seriously if we'd every cross paths in my official capacity.

Eitherway, I may give you a warning but I don't fix citations for anyone. Not even my wife for obvious reasons, sorry.

Thanks Randomo. The chrome pulley and lower fork legs are on the way.

All the Best

Cy
