The Bonneville is a sweet ride, and it looks great (except for the newer versions with cast 17" wheels and megaphone pipes), but like all new bikes, it is almost completely devoid of character. Riding one is a purely visual experience. It's engine sounds like a sewing machine, and does not shake. It's also to quiet, but that can be fixed.
I won't spend more on a bike than I think it's worth, but if it's a good deal, I don't seem to have a problem buying bikes I don't need.
