@VoxmanPat A police force concerned about using a phone whilst driving???? Now there's a novelty. Wonder if it will catch on over here?
Kawasaki W800 v Triumph Bonnie 2011
"But, on my favourite B-roads and a half dozen other unknown ones, it steers and holds a line like no other bike I’ve ridden for ages."
Since the Bonnie does not have a ridiculous amount of power to put to the ground, it gets by with a 140-mm wide rear tire (and 110-mm) front, which means the bike turns in and steers without effort, unlike a 90-pound lighter supersport. For all but the tightest corners, one can just push it over with the outside knee to turn in.
One thing the article hints at but does not say is that one can have fun on a Bonnie at less than banning speeds, unlike a modern race replica which feels asleep at anything below the ton.
Cartridge emulators for the fork, better rear shocks, and a custom reworked seat will fix the only problem that really detract from the bike (on the to do list).
