Long story short, I will be moving to Central West of NSW ( Bathurst -Lithgow) fairly soon but no rush. The 200 Scab will not do the job on distances like this so I'm looking at Alternative,,,,,Bev 35o being one.
Royal E 500 struck me as being a fun alternative but all reviews come back with the vibration at speed and weak rear drum brake issue: no good if yr going the 65 kms between Lithgow and Bathurst, hoping to sit on 110 kph.
This review from the LA Times pretty well says it for me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWJ3-gBWFmU
Unless I can get a fairly new one REAL cheap or they bring out new models that dress brakes/vibes issue, I'll probably pass....
Current thinking is a older BMW "airhead": we shall see.
Re release times of bikes, ya'd wonder why Yamaha didn't realease the bigger Tricity in the first place as that 125 is too underpowered IMHO
