Sold the Bonnie
« on: April 04, 2009, 09:56:59 PM »
Well, I did it. My Bonnie black has a new owner and I'll put a deposit down on a Red C5 Monday, I hope this new Royal Enfield lives up to it's press, that Triumph was a very very nice ride.

Put a $2000 deposit down on a red C5 today, now the long and terrible wait begins. I'll be worse than a six year old at Christmas.  ;D

  Good Job r180rt,

      Did your dealer give you an ETA on those Bad Boys ?
      I'm really wanting one but a local fellow here has a
      beautiful 05 Thruxton for a screaming price.....
      and I don't want to wait all season for the C5's as
      our riding season is short here in Alaska. The RE
      suits me better but this Triumph is sweet......

   Best Regards,
   Flint.

The dealer estimates they will be here in june. Yeah the Thruxton is great fun to ride, I nearly bought one when I got the Bonnie which I loved. but the RE  suits me better too, I love big one lungers, what can I say? When my wife isn't looking I'll ride her Savage to keep from going crazy without a bike for the next couple of moinths.

Enjoy, all!

Meanwhile my bike is stripped of all wiring, looks like it threw up. :(
