Hi Joe, looks like you have finally made the decision on the switch to the 660. Do you have a delivery date for your new bike yet :slightly_smiling_face:

They had the bike at Bulldog but i ask them to fit full crash protection so when the get it sorted they said they would deliver and take the Bonnie away. So just have to wait but not riding anything other than my Honda in this weather.

Always nice to speak with you. Yes will try when i learn a little more about the forum. Yes i am quite exited. The Bonnie just got to heavy for me and it was just a mater of time before i slipped and damaged it. As much as i adored the bike.

Thanks and always nice to talk to your self as well. Yes as said i just stopped using the Bonnie as i was finding it to heavy. Fine for riding but i just know if i was pulling up or coming to a halt and slipped i would not be able to save it. The Trident is just a little lighter and a different bike.

Yes i am looking forward to it. I did have the 675 and am sorry i sold it to my Son. Mainly as he won’t sell it back to me now. But it was a real peach of a bike and did every thing you wanted from a bike.

Yes have been reading some reviews and clips and i am quite impressed. It doesn’t have the attitude like the 675 so should be good for an old fogey like me. Just all the waiting gets me on edge not for the bike but if the Bonnie in a bad day get damaged it changes the whole process. Nice to speak with you thanks for the opinion.

Well i have the new bike. Two days now. Haven’t even started it yet nor taken it out of the garage. Getting lazy lazy lazy. But been working and even finding that a task these days. Think it is just the pathetic weather. I will see if i can buck up tomorrow and take a picture. Got to get it out to wash anyway as they did the PDI but there is some salt in places that are hard to get to. Roll on the sunshine. I think like PatW said i am going to have to get used to this machine.
