I read that review as well. I guess I kind of just assumed since they rode so many bikes and had these awesome powers of observation that they would be able to notice all these things that I wouldn't. That I would have the kind of "standard" experience.
CJ: How's your new(to you)...
Nope, sorry I haven't. The dealership didn't have one available for demo. I would take 66replica's word for it though. The Thruxton is well loved and seems like a lot of dealerships can't keep them or the a1 bonnevilles in stock long.
