Taken August 30, 2011
It's a stock black case Bonneville (older model, carbs and spoke wheels), except for a small clear fairing, gaiters on the front forks, and machined seat bolts.
hot-wired (they cut the ignition harness and left me a memento) at 21st
street and Kaiser Plaza in Oakland, CA during the day on a busy street.
On a darkly amusing note, I found this item from the New York Times listing both my previous bike (a Honda Nighthawk 750, destroyed in an accident) and my formerly current ride. Sometimes life's not fair.
