Re: Imagine this...
- Hey what is all this crap - the Bonneville when
released in 1959 was the hottest thing on the road, in
terms of performance and looks. it was not by any means
a cruiser, the same for the sportster, basically
the american equivalent being light and sporty
compared to the other lumbering hogs. Only in the later
years did either of them change to being lesser sports
bikes as the competition overtook them in terms of
horsepower. While the sportster has never found a place in my
heart you have to give HD credit for persisting with
them and changing the focus to suit the
market.<br><br>Seems like the comparisons between the Harley and
Triumph you are making are the same as were being passed
around in the 1950's and 60's.<br><br>Lets hope that the
next generation Bonnie is a success even if its not
true to the original, its a bike and deserves a run.
One might one day find a home in my garage when I am
too old to hold on to clip ons, if they are good
enough as I suspect they might be.
