    Hi all,

    New member, 63 years old, from the North of the Netherlands.

    Had loads of bikes, most of them British.
    Sold my Commando couple of years ago, bad knee, couldn’t kick iT anymore. Should never have done that, but so iT is.
    Son nr.1 inhereted the Laverda, as promised, so I was left with a Montesa and an Enfield.
    Had to have a twin, so bought a 2008 865 EFI Bonneville, originally from South Croydon.
    Few things to do, battery, front brake, tlc, but ok bike, I’m happy.

    See you around, Haddock
