Default Thinking of getting 08 Bonneville Black

I am looking at getting a new bike, and I have my eye on the Bonny Black. To me its just beautiful.

I was hoping that some of the members here could give me some feedback on some things to look out for or share their experiences, and photos.

I am 6'1" so I am especially interested in how comfortable taller owners find the bike. Also want to know if there are any nice looking crash bar/highway peg combos out there... and see some pictures if they exist.

Thanks.

I have an 07 T100 and love the bike. mscuddy is right about the sound and performance stock. Nothing a set of British Custom pipes, losing the airbox and some rejetting won't cure. As far as the size goes, can't help you there, I'm 5'9". I've got the only Bonnie in the area and it definately catches attention. You'll be able to find a lot of answers to your questions here.

Default I really liked the last one I rode

Traded my Sprint RS for a T100 for about sixty miles through the twisties around Presidio, Texas. The Bonnie was super easy to ride and very relaxing. At that time I was more into bombing along than I am today, but I've really thought that I need a Bonnie in the garage since then.
