If acceleration and cornering are important to you then that one is not ideal. Keep in mind that great deals on motorcycles are out there to be had if you have the patience.
My dad recently bought a Yamaha Stratoliner 1900 cc, so I want something that would let me take some trips with him for some bonding time with the old man. I have a car to drive around town with, but I wouldn't mind taking the bike out every now and then for some casual rides or for a quick 10 minute ride to my campus for classes. I found a Sportster that I'm absolutely in love with, but I just don't have the extra cash to spend the 5k
. I guess I will be lucky to have anything on two wheels and I just want to get out there and have some fun.
This is the sportster that I truly want, but it's still out of my poor grad student price range at 4,500 dollars.Edited by Texastyle - 5/16/12 at 8:54am
