The new Bonneville's are the nicest looking of all the retros in my humble opinion that is.

15 months old and only 309 miles? How can someone buy a lovely bike like that and never ride it?
There seems to be one or two about........

Good grief, how bizarre....why would you do that?
Mind you, a salesman was telling me the other day that one of their customers had bought 7 bikes in one year - one of which he never even took delivery of, but part-exed it on delivery day after a change of mind.
More money than sense!

Lovely bike. I looked at a T100 a year or so back in 3 cross motorcycles and was suprised that the seat height/seat width on it made it usuitable for my duck-like leg dimensions (without lowering). Maybe one for the future though.

The Street Twin is a lot lower than the T100, and is tuned for 10 more bhp. Too cramped for me, but..?
