Regarding the Bonneville I wouldn't be too persuaded by that "analysis". I don't get the wallowing part, I do agree with the suspension part. For that all you need is $300 or so for some rear IKons.
If you owned an original it may be a case of where your expectations lie. I see plenty of other commentary about how much better the new one is.
