Last Fall I sold SupaTen #3 & picked up a 19 Tiger 800 XRT...
Then..in Jan I sold Strom #10 & bought a 13 Tiger Explorer....which was a mistake...too much like the Tenere in weight. (Its for sale)
So...in Aug I bought what Ive really been lookin for in a 2nd bike...
& Im gonna be the guinnea pig I guess...
Brand New CF Moto 700 CL-X
$5K OUT THE DOOR!! in Mobile AL
$360 in Tx TTL added to that.
This thing is a hoot on the lil paved goatpaths I love to ride.
Fully adj KYB suspenders...J Juan brakes...Pirelli MT60 18/17 tires... dual power modes...ABS & a magic button (cruise) 432lbs gassed up
Nicely detailed styling touches.
& it fits me!
If you haven't owned an H-D yet, get one.
Anyone that is considering one should try it. Maybe one day I will have one.
This is in and of itself is a very loaded question. What are some of the factors are we to consider?
Are there any related age, health, height/weight or flexibility/strength issues?
What experience level new, current or looking to down size?
What type is preferred, street, dirt or both?
While I like some of the suggested bike i’d be hard pressed to recommend a model. Lacking the advantage that dealers have for example, where they can physically see and speak to a prospective bike owner, I would instead be going on somethings that I just simply like. While liked my VTX and do like my Versys, i’d never suggest them without knowing more.
I did look at the Rebel 1100 fairly close and like it, but it did not "twix my nethers" like a Scout does.
I threw a leg over and a strange glow appeared around me and a faint sound of singing could be heard...
That's what we call a win-win. Congrats to you, and BrandonI made a deal to get my XR150L back in trade for the DR650 with cash I felt was very reasonable for both parties. I'll still have a dual sport I plan on stripping down for a plated trail bike to throw in the truck. I ride with the gentlemen often, so the DR isn't really gone, right?
I fell in love with the Transalp quickly. The ergo's fit me just right and the bike feels lighter than it is. Compared to the Vstom 800, it feels lighter and more manageable, at least for me. We will see once the honeymoon is over, but it feels like the bike for me.
I made an offer on the Transalp I didn't think would actually work. I had some cards to play and knew folks involved. I am happy with with the deal and the bike will be delivered tomorrow.
