None at moment









I am in the market fora beginner bike, the 300cc engine makes the entry level a little more apealing (im 6 ft 195) really like the verys 650 but I am thinking may be too big with the 650CC for a first bike.

You could do a 650 as long as you take it easy. Some people tend to grow out of a smaller bike.

I always say if you're new to riding get you something used. If you drop it and scratch and dent it at least it won't be a new bike. A lot less tears to worry about. After 6 months to a year after you have become a little proficient buy what you want.

Leeward,

I am not advertising or anything, but my old 2007 Kawasaki EX500 is for sale at MPH, guaranteed fun ride, reasonable cost, and it was very, very maintained, by me. Performance will be somewhere between this slick 300 and a 600 cc, bike, and it will fit a large frame .

I would love it too. Retros are getting popular because as baby boomers age out of big and fast bikes, some of them are drawn to smaller and simpler bikes they rode as youngsters. I think that's explains the success Triumph has with their 70's retros. I grew up and started riding in the 80's, which is arguably the greatest decade for motorcycling - one that spawned the Vmax, VFR, Gixxers and Ninjas, among other greats. I wish the Japanese could be as prolific once again.
