From my post in the Kawasaki forum i'm looking for another bike,so as anyone got a bonnie whats it like i have a TDM now, good as or better?
Same as mine, 2005. Mine was well cared for and I have to say the other one looked like it had never ever been cleaned or serviced.Don't be put off a Bonnie because of this.I only took the picture because I was so amazed at how mistreated it had obviously been. Mine was like new when I sold it. It doesn't take much to look after a bike.Chrome covered machines are always gonna need a little lovin' though (If I was fit enough to ride I'd buy another in an instant :thumbleft: )thanks for the photo's Sohoeasy,bit of a mess on that bike, did you notice what year it was? You have put me off a bit, but thats ok i need to know what's what.
Mine's a 2003, elderly owner from new who passed away in December, leaving the bike with 3,650 on the clock :thumbup:
Loving it so far - it may be the same dry weight as an AT, but as it is a lot lower it carries the weight better in my opinion, and is definitely a lot easier to roll around for those of us with shorter inside legs Lovely engine, got about 57mpg out of the last tankful (150 to reserve) - suspension is the one area where Triumph cheaped out, it works but it isn't great. Oh, and the wheel rims rust out (just like an AT ) and there have been spoke breakages due to the design of the hubs - Triumph changed the hub design a couple years ago, I think. Plenty of options to upgrade it though, and plenty of tinkering opportunities full-stop - the benefit of a bike that is sold in the US I suppose - more tinkerers over there wanting gadgets and the like.
