    I'm through with Bonnevilles

    As soon as I can I am getting rid of my 2008 Bonneville black. Why? you ask. I thought the new bonneville would be like the 60-70 bonnevilles (and other brands) and could be worked on with a set of proper fitting wrenches, crescent wrench and screwdrivers. They are an engineering...

    Easy fast/cheap valve cover fix

    At 18000 miles, my valve cover gasket began to leak on the left front of the engine. I took the seat and tank off and when I removed the first bolt there was a rubber like gromet under it which looked like it had shrunken somewhat. I went to OSH and bought 4 3/16"x7/16" rubber washers and...

    Oh, woe am I, what am I gonna do

    I promised my wife any bike see wanted if she would go to the MSF and get her license and ride along with me. After much shopping around, looking at all kinds of motorcycles, she chose an all black "883 Harley hugger". :shrug: I'm so ashamed I hang my head everywhere I go now; and it won't be...

    tutoro chain oiler I purchased one of these and installed it on my Bonneville last week. Cost was $35.00 including shipping, if my mind is working right. Installation was easy, even though I screwed up placement the first time:lame:. Not the fault of the manufacturer. It has a...

    Kudos to Helmet city

    Bought a new helmet through Helmet city. It wasn't delivered when I expected so I contacted them on the phone. The order dept. told me they had sent an E-mail to the wrong address explaining that the helmet I had ordered was on back order and not expected for 3 weeks. For that, I received a...

    Made love for 4 hours today

Visability was very restricted and the sun was visible for maybe an hour during that whole time.:mad2: It rained last night and mid morning today the sky was bright blue and the temperature was significantly warmer than it...

    Thought I was in love before

    Just took my first short ride after installing Ricor "intiminators in the front suspension and Hagon rear shocks. OMG! My Bonnie has been transformed into a much better riding motorcycle. Rx this upgrade to anybody that wants their Bonnie to ride and handle better!

    cocktail shaker mufflers

    I've never been one to follow the pack sooooo, I'm thinking of putting "cocktail shakers" on my Bonnie instead of dunstalls, dominators, emgos and other mufflers popular for the Bonnie. Anyone know anything about them ie, rejetting , sound level etc? I'm not interested in max power, just a...

    Question for Bonifide

    Absolutely no disrespect intended but, looking at your avatar makes me wonder if: 1.) is that a picture of you and was it taken when you were assigned to vice/narcotics? 2.) if it is you, and taken recently, does the agency you work for have that liberal of grooming standards? (the agency...

    I did it, I did it, I did it! All by my little self

    Just came back from a ten mile ride after completion of removing the AI and EVLS (I think it's called). My Bonnie Black seems smoother than before I did this, has anyone else noticed a similar difference?:ride: I studied every bit of info about removing the :piss:"crap", which is now...

    Beauty is as beauty does - King & Queen seat

    I've read comments about how "ugly" the King & Queen seat is. Just made the first mod to my Bonnie and installed one. MLW rides with me a lot so I got it for her. She complained of "buzz butt" after an hour on the stock seat. Mine just went numb. Just got back from a four hour ride and...

    from the rectum of the world

    Hello. Checking in from Lemoore, located in the Republik of Kalifornia (AKA the rectum of the world). I know, why is it the rectum of the world? Well, all close roads are as straight as a ruler and flat as twiggy's chest (may be before the time of some of you) and it takes an hours ride (at...
