... start of a new one... Just test rode the object of my desire, bonneville se, bitterly, bitterly dissapointed, really wanted to love it but just didnt do it for me. Tried a street triple omfg! So easy to ride, inspires confidence for the inexperienced (current bike cb400) sounds fing amazing and what an engine, torque from down low, smooth, revs like crazy. I think i "need" one. Cb400 just felt wrong and so gutless afterwards. I knew it was a mistake to test ride grown up bikes. Once probation at new job over i will get one. Wow. Love the look and heritage of the bonnie still but felt like a tractor. Turns out i am not the distinguished pom gent i thought. Any other striple testers whose heads were turned by something else? Want to try f800r on a mates recommendation to be sure but i think i am in love.
