First time poster and owner (coming soon).
I have been hovering in these boards just reading and Iím close to my training course dates and getting ready for my first bike. This site has already given me great advice but Iím having a problem zeroing in on a bike.
Iím 31, 5í10 roughly 198-202 lbs. I know better then to go large but really want something to cruise with solo (why would I want her with me!), have fun and just enjoy riding while learning without having to deal with a 900 lbs bike. Iím just not a sport bike guy either. Done the fast cars thing and past that but I also do not want a bike that will take 12 seconds to do 60mph. As for bike experience, notta. Raced/and rode four wheelers like 14 years ago... "Man I'm getting old"
Also unfortunately due to my area and where I live it does need to safely be able to travel at min 70 mph which concerns me with the smaller cc engines in which I would like to learn with. Avg. speed in my area is around 45-50.
A bike which has had my attention for a long time for a trainer is the Johnny Pag Spyder 300. Always been more interested in the chopper style so figured that might be a great bike to learn with and upgrade in the future? Only problem I never hear anyone talk about them? (other then alternativecruisers.com) A local custom shop, Chopper City in Orange Park, Fl. sells them and I know that shop is highly recommended and I would find it odd for them to sell flat out junk.
Of course they say itís a perfect trainer bike but I really hope to find some other owners past or present?
Thoughts and opinions good or bad are all appreciated
