Well Alan, I have owned all 3, 350's and this one is the best handling, lightest, and peppiest of the lot. Nothing not to like so far. I am a little biased though having owned a few vintage Bonnevilles, this is the closest bike I have ridden to them, just need the power they produced.

The exhaust is an Emgo cocktail shaker. It has been on 6 of my bikes. Nice throaty sound of the glorious Brit bikes of old. You can get them online at the Dennis Kirk wedsite.

Neat bike! I'm cursed with falling in love with these little bikes, then remembering that I have no practical use for something that can't go 80 on the freeway without wanting to blow up.

What I need is for my wife to accidentally utter a slight interest in possibly learning to ride someday to give me an excuse to add one of these to the fleet.

Edit: That's how I ended up with my Interceptor, by the way.... Missus said something that vaguely sounded like "I like motorcyles", I bought a 300cc Honda, a year later it didn't really work for my commute, I sold it and rolled the money over to my 650.

Ooh, that could be dangerous. I have a process... My wife loves watching "Johnny Bike Sanook" videos on YouTube, and we recently watched his review of the Hunter. He is a hoot to watch, and gushes praise on every bike he tests. His normal bike is a Meteor 350.

Next, when we're out doing errands together, I'll casually mention that I need to drop into the RE dealer... to get more, I dunno, carburetors or something. Get her to come into the showroom with me, and hey, here's that bike that Johnny was riding in that video we just watched. Why not give it a test-seat and see what you think...
