I am sitting in my lounge room watching a thunderstorm. I arrived home 3 hours ago from a ride to Bethanga near the Hume Weir for the SR500 Club Rally. I rode the Bonneville and was pretty happy with it as a tourer. The tank holds 14.5 litres which gives a range of 200 miles or 360 kms with a bit left in the tank. The economy has stayed steadfastly at 3.8L/100 in all conditions. The headlight is bloody awful nowhere near as good as the Vstrom or AT. The seat is good I did three 1000km days and I could still function. The whole ride was 5936kms so I think it's run in now. It handles dirt roads easily just like mu SR500. Lots of people stopped to talk about the Triumphs they had back in the day.
