Yeah after getting excited about looking at those other bikes I came back to the reality that I am a weekday commuter - and will very rarely ride on the weekend, as usually I jump on the back of my bf's boulevard :) So really don't want to stretch past the $6000. I considered stretching it to the citycom 300 because it looks like a nice bike... but I doubt I'd be swayed to the $7990 plus orc type bikes. Whilst they may be better bikes - I think I'll be super happy with a performance improvement over the 125 which hopefully the 200s will have??
My dealer recommended the HD 200 - looks ok on the site though haven't seen it in person yet.. anyone know how these compare with the VS 125? How does the HD 200 compare with the Bug Hawk/Ego 250 - as thats 5990 plus orc. The scarebo looks a bit to vespa-ish for my liking (no offence to anyone.. I just like the look of the bolwells - especially my vs 125 :))
Oh the other thing is any better choice for a 5'11 height ? I think my vs might be a little squishy for me (but it was my first bike.. so didn't really notice :))
Could do with a snazzy new helmet - hopefully something that will fit under the seat, as my current helmet does fit in the VS 125's seat compartment :(
Thanks for all the opinions!!!
