You nailed it. Motorcycles of Dulles was the dealer and they sell BMW, Triumph, Indian, Royal Enfield, and Zero electric motorcycles. Bought mine from Philip.

If you decide to take that sticker off tank one day and itís very stubborn to get off,run a hair dryer lightly over sticker and itíll peel right off. Worked for me. Congrats again Tim!

I would take a photo of it and peel it off while it is still relatively easy to do. Once the sun bakes it in, it will be harder to come off and might even leave a mark depending how soft the clear coat is.

Awesome bike Tim. Congrats again. I'd love a second bike. But i'd go old. 1940s flathead. Meh... pipe dream.

The Bonneville Bobber looks great! the only thing that kept me from it was the seat keeping you in one position and I felt too close to the tank and it was quite hard. But love the look of it.

Wow, how cool...

Hey there Tim, Congratulations!

Your new ride is awesome and really like the green.

For those of us with significant years under our belt, always a flood of memories. The sticker on the tank also sort of belongs. In that nostalgic vein, I remember my first mini-bike was Honda 50 ('72) and had stickers all over it, half of them in Japanese, a rolling owners manual! Would ride the railroad tracks to a warehouse in Teterboro, NJ, to a company called Berliner (I think), they were the importers for Triumph, BSA's and Norton's back then. Some of their bikes were no longer created so we would pick which one we wanted/dreamed to buy, sit on them and bench ride them into the sunset. Actually until they threw us out, again. Nevertheless, according to Ansestry.com I think I saw your bike!

Super happy for you and congrats again and most importantly, Donna and I wish you millions of happy miles!

Thanks Bob for the kind words and the walk down memory lane. Hard to explain why, but I always had this thing for Harleys and Brit Bikes. Didn't want an older one that would require beau-coup maintenance and the T120 is actually right quick from the factory with plenty of grunt. But I still get the nostalgic vibe while riding it. More of the pure essence of the motorcycling experience to me. No radio, no luggage (at least yet), no navigation. I got my Road Glide for that. Hope to see you & Donna again before the next meet & greet.
