Tell us about it: After 40 years of biking, comfort was important when I chose a bike to replace my Suzuki V-Strom 650. The Bonneville America is not only comfortable, it looks stunning too. I’ve added plenty of extra chrome over the years, so it gets a lot of admiring looks wherever we go. It also handles surprisingly well, with excellent ground clearance. My wife Angela – a competent biker herself – prefers to ride pillion these days – we love touring, and have done trips to the Lake District, Yorkshire Moors, and down the East coast of England, always getting a warm welcome at our overnight stays.
