Er, only if you are really good with a wrench since they quit making those in the 80s and they weren't all that reliable in the first place.

forest,


Pack a lunch and look up the 'New Rider' "sticky". Loads and loads of good info on bikes and gear for newbies.

If you're talking about a NEW 900 Bonneville I'd say absolutely, they're excellent trouble free and forgiving bikes. If you do in fact mean a 650 then they're beautiful bikes but they need a lot of TLC, probably more then you wish to give,

These days, with so many bikes to choose from, you almost can't see the forest for the trees.

If I were you, I wood leaf some time and read the New Rider sticky as 'Rod suggested.

And please, don't be a sap and start barking about the wisecracks. It goes with the territory.
