"...Wish they were still making such bikes."They are:http://www.triumph.co.uk/usa/2009_BonnevilleT100_9816.aspxThis is Triumph's own modern reproduction of a Bonnie. Surely more authentic than Kawasaki's version of a Bonnie copy. I tried a W650 some years ago and it was a niice bike, I'm not criticising it. But that was before Triumph reintroduced the Bonneville. Once they did, there was no place for the W650 any more and Kawasaki stopped making it.The modern Bonnie by the way is a great machine. Terrific looking and nice to ride. I've owned one. I probably shouldn't say this here but it is superior to an Enfield in every way for those that want a reproduction of an old design but with all the mod cons. But of course it costs a lot more too.
Who would marry a woman who tells you to get rid of the bike?!
It'd be fun to bop up there if I have the weekend free. Personally, I've ridden a few of the new Bonnevilles and I don't like the 360 degree timed engine that you see on the standard or the T100 version of the bike. Those bikes bore me, like riding a Honda Nighthawk or something.
