I’m looking at getting myself a ‘new’ bike (funds and wife permitting). I reckon my knees will never forgive me if I go back to sports bikes though, so am looking for something along a cruiser.
I’m torn between either a V Max or some sort of cruiser. Can’t really afford anything like a decent HD (or be done with the maintenance) unfortunately. There are however some nice, low mileage V Maxes to be found out there for between 4-6k, problem is I still can’t stretch to that either at the moment!!
I’m tempted to get a cheapish cruiser for the summer to cut about on, maybe keep putting something aside until next year when a decent V Max might be more accessible. The Suzuki VZ800 Marauder seems to get reasonable reviews and can be picked up for about 2k for a low-miler.
Any views/opinions/experience would be appreciated, particularly on whether or not the VZ has suitable reach for a six-footer.
