I found this bike while looking around on the Triumph site. BTW, there's only a bag on the right side.

It looks like a new Bonnie done ala Norton style. That looks like a corbin solo seat on the back of it. It is a nice effect. I am hankering for a retro bike a Bonnie T 100 or perhaps a Kaw Drifter. I am getting sentimental for my youth I guess. The nice thing about the new Bonnies is that they work. They start and don't leak oil all over the place like the old ones...LOL!

I'd have to agree...I've lusted after a Thruxton ever since I first saw one...I've wanted one ever since I rode one. But I always thought that I wouldn't be able to stand the riding posture for very long. Now that I've been down to the local dealer, though, it looks like I'm gonna be buying a Thruxton next week. The Bonnie in the picture I linked to earlier has the rear fender, seat and seat cowl of the Thruxton, which is my favorite part. It's cheaper to buy a Thruxton and put the LSL top clamp/handlebar kit on it than it is to buy a Bonnie (the basic one, not the T100) and give it the rear end of a Thruxton. Plus, you get the larger displacement motor, tach, lighter wheels, adjustable preload forks, rearset pegs, etc. I'm less of a fan of the checkered flag decals on the Thrux than I used to be, so I'll probably end up repainting it later on, but for now it'll be fine. They're both smart looking bikes, and it looks like Triumph is making a quality product. I can't wait to get mine!
