Hahaha, "rules say I have to post"... ah Darlage, you're such a requirements drama queen.
Fellow members, this is the old friend whose XVS650 I've mentioned before, the one he bought back in Autumn and is also the dude who roped me in to doing that Indian demo ride.
lol, I am always dramatic. Also, I think I sent you a link to a video where I am unsure of my engine. It kinda now sounds like my MR2 did before that engine when poof!
I am looking at the following bikes: Indian Scout and 60, Honda Phantom(most likely not though), Yamaha Bolt, Striker, 950, 1100,1300, Vulcan S, VULCAN 900 CUSTOM and Victory Octane.
I love the way the Scout looks yet for whatever reason I didnt enjoy the drive. I think that could be racked up to having a shit week up to that point, hating the guy leading the ride as he almost killed half of us in a span of 3 minutes, and having a job interview while at the dealership. There is another event near me at the end of July so I am going to give it a go again(more than welcome to come with Jens) and Yamaha has one I think they said in August or September. Just need to find out when Kawasaki has one and I should be able to have this all wrapped up.
Sadly,, right now i am kinda struggling in what I want as I basically just want a faster version of my 650 so if anyone has ridden any of the above i would love to hear how they specifically compared to the vstar in the below areas
1) Seating position
2) Accelaration to 60.
3) Highway driving from 60-80 specifically vibration and ability to accelarate.
4) How it handles twisties and flickability.
Any help would be greatly appreciated and I also threw in a pic of my dogs as they are awesome!
