Prices do vary by region but that's a bit high for the cb360t around here for a nice runner; for $2000 firm I'd expect a much nicer bike. Watching his video: no way those are stock exhausts, and it sounds like it seriously needs a valve adjustment. And it's a huge pet peeve of mine when people point out "simple, cheap" repairs they couldn't be bothered to do while claiming the bike is worth top dollar. And neither this bike or its successor my CB400t are going to be...
You thinking something newer or is vintage okay? The first newer bike to come to mind is the Suzuki TU250X, but they're still over $2k - in part because Suzuki only seems to sell them in the US every other year.If you're looking for something older, CB200Ts, CB350s, and CB450s are all easily found in that price range. The CB200T seems well suited for shorter inseams.
It's weird. I ride year-round in Chicago if the roads are clear and it's not the rides in the teens and twenties that get me, it's the chilly days after it's supposed to be warm, as I'm not geared up. We had a morning in the 50s last week that had my hands and face freezing without my heavy-duty gloves and neck gaiter.
The adorable part is me assuming they're father and son. This was near Boystown, so it could have been some young dude and his sugar daddy.
While out riding this morning, saw a fun visual - a guy in his 20s riding a Street Triple with his dad, who was on an old Bonneville.
Well, he was good in Groundhog Day.
Th second jacket has more leather, more danced materials, and more safety features. Whether they're worth the money is another thing...
I pay $180/year to GEICO for the CB400, full coverage, which is about $60/year more than liability. Yeah, I could buy another for about a grand if something happened, but with the difference being less than what I spend on Starbucks every month, why not get it?
I've always liked the Monster but the Streetfighter 848 is my favorite Ducati right now - very under-rated bike. Surely the thousands saved will offset any potential warranty issues? I can't see it worth going for new.
I much prefer a backpack to bungees and cargo nets, though I've got both. Like the above poster, I'm paranoid about a load coming off the bike and with a backpack I know it's secure. I use my cargo net when I've got something too awkward-shaped to fit my backpack, or because the pack is full (last time was a box of wine for a pizza party).
