1. What do you think of the new Thruxton? Nice bike if you can get over that rear fender treatment. If you can't, there's always the slower, but better looking Bonnie SE. Cast wheels are a big plus to me. 2. What do you think of the Ducati Sport 1000 Classic? I'm a big fan of 2v Ducs, for the sound and reliability/ease of maintenance. That said, the plastic gas tank debacle and rough seating position would keep me off the 1000 classic. I'd get a 900 SS FE long before I got a Sport Classic.
