Interesting write up about the Bonneville in mine and Drifter'* local paper (I have to give him credit - he found it while being chased by two little girls on the train haha). I already emailed him about the 0-60 times, the Series II in 96 error, and engine failure issue.

Kinda sounds like my bio. Had a 6000 ste before my bonne. I take exception to the mushy ride though. At least on the ssei. Author sounds like a European car driver though. We're not as prejudice as they are.

Basicly it means I agree with everthing that the article says about the Bonnie. As much as I love my Bonnie, it could have been done better handling wise, but thats not to say that a driver who knows what the capabilities of his car are can't overcome some of its quirkier traits. I've learned how to do some interesting manuvers in my SE. The car to a large degree reminds me of a beautiful woman who just happens to have this mole on her cheek. The mole is an imperfection, but you can live with it because of all the other great stuff that she'* got going for her. That is my love for my Bonnie.

Well mine is like a shining white light in where I see nothing but beauty, companionship, the working relationship we have, and love. There is no room for anything else. Kind of like with my Angelcake
