I haven't ridden one as yet but i did like how light the V7 was.My buddy would like a Bonneville but used ones are pretty pricey here in TO. He's getting a pretty good deal on the V7 so I'm telling him to pull the trigger.
Went shopping with my buddy this past weekend for his first bike.
Managed to sit on a bunch of bikes (Yamaha FZ-07, FZ-09, Striple R, MV Agusta Brutale, CBR600). The Brutale fit me so nice. When I sat on the CBR600, my back hurt instantly. No clue how the sport bike dudes ride those on the daily.
My buddy's probably gonna buy a used Moto Guzzi V7.
What is the motorcycle parking situation in your city?
In Toronto, motorcycle parking has traditionally been free where there's street parking spot (cars have to pay) but now they're introducing new parking payment systems and there's talk of forcing motorcycles to pay.
