    When spring warms up makes me want to buy another motorcycle. Sold mine about 5 years ago.

    For 16 years I didn't even own a car. The scooter was my way around.

    Be a bit before the Bonneville comes out of hibernation. Best be 60º for me.

    I had scooters growing up. I love and miss them.

    What year/cc Bonneville do you have. Trumpets are one of my favorite bikes!

    It's an '08. Pedestrian slicer notes the displacement. ;)

    Sweet!! I've had a 1970 650cc bonnevile and a 1972 750cc Trident. They took the old BSA rocket 3 moter and built a nice handling bike around it. I've also had several Nortons. Limey bikes are pretty cool.

    Nice Bonneville. Thanks for the picture.
    I started out at age 15 1/2 with a Lambretta Scooter.
    I've owned a variety of Bikes sense then. Owned a 650 BSA many years ago.
    Here is a picture of my current ride. I really like the way it corners and handles in general. It's a '98 BMW R1100RT.
    Haven't had it out yet. Still too cold for my old bones.

    Nice Scoot. I used to have a BMW RS90, 900cc and it was real smooth running! I just can't ride anymore. Back starts cramping after about 15 minutes on one!

    Thanx fold the "likes" fellas. It's just what I wanted. Just gotta hope my previous riding partner gets a new ride as riding alone is kinda boring. Got a few friends with bikes but they're the "go, go, GO" types and I'm the one riding to enjoy what I ride past not for the speed and cornering leans. Have toyed with getting a little 250 or so plaything but thinking a snowmobile for the boy might get more use.
    I like the BMW's. 8) Luckily my Triumph dealer is the dealer for those as well. Almost got tempted by one but the Bonneville won. :)
