Owned a 2004 Bonnie for 3 months now and accrued over 2000 miles on the clock (somehow).
The bike is a lady as far as handling goes - extremely stable and manouverable even at very low speed, very forgiving.
Acceleration is good easily climbing to 80 without thrashing through the gears before I realise that I am going that fast and back down to the speed limit again. But donīt expect super-bike performance from a classic repro.
Fuel economy is good averaging 60 mpg
Have had no problems with the bike at all - starts every morning and in all weathers.
Braking is excellent.
The only down side is one that the original Triumphs had, the seat is not too padded, but there is a King & Queen option available.
Overall, this is the best bike that I have owned (I have been riding japs for 30+ years)and highly recommend to anyone wanting a retro cruiser / commuter.
