Highway worthy heavy and fast enough to be comfortableLooking around Cycletrader, there are two offers that seem to fit this list:
Decent seat with sissy bar for riding 2 up
Low enough to be comfortably flat footed at a stop
Inexpensive enough that there's no reason for me to say no
Will probably only put on 5k miles a year, at least for a bit
Ideally light weight within these parameters
1. 2004 Yamaha V Star Classic 650, 32k miles
2. 2001 Honda Shadow Spirit 1100, 16k miles (this one has small bags that would be handy for day trips)
Anyone have any experience with either of these? What's the reputation of the bikes. My Honda Rebel seems pretty much indestructible, but I've only ridden it a thousand miles or so since I got it in August.
UPDATE: This Kawasaki Vulcan 750 looks pretty nice, but is about 50% more expensive (still not too expensive, though). Any thoughts?
