Before we say hello to its successor, we take one last twilight ride to see what's made the Bonneville so popular, and where its successor may... 

Motorcycles are the coolest way to transport humans on the ground. The feeling we get bending a bike into a corner and tilting a horizon is so much more flowing and invigorating than driving a car, as is the intensity of acceleration a motorbike can provide. Add in to this stimulation the sound...
