Long time a member but don’t post much.
Anyways I know there are loads of topics on this but keen to get thoughts.
I currently own a 2104 Bonneville 865, I had grand ideas of being like Steve Mcqueen, but realized I am too fat and need a bike for different reasons.
Anyways I commute Welwyn Garden City to London max twice a week but we are looking to move further out to Bigglewade or beyond.
The Bonnie is perfect for London but not great on the motorway (A1M)
I also prefer having a top box and a screen which both look Shite on the bonnie so I am after something for around 4-5k that would do the job long term.
I can’t do adventure bikes as I am 5ft7 and would like to be able to get both feet on the floor
Just wondering what people use for around 80 ish mile round trip but also a little bit fun on the weekends? Also want somehting newish as I do not have the time or knowledge for any mechanical work.
I had a SV650 (17 plate) before the Bonnie and kind of thinking I should have kept it, put a screen on it and a box and that would have been perfect but happy for other ideas
