    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    O.k......forget the motorcycle for a moment. Even if this bike was built with the highest standards and highest components I still would still not recommended if you are new to motorcycling and ESPECIALLY if is going to be your first bike. The aggressive race style does not lend itself properly to new riders. The poorly thought out seating position and the suspension cautions me. Be careful....for your own sake.

    I used to be stationed at 32nd St Navy Station and rode my motorcycle home on the weekends to Downey California. Even when I was young and strong as a bull moose it was uncomfortable on a 87 FZ700. I can't imagine taking my cafe CB750..........which has a nice riding positioned designed on it for my back.......and making that same trip.


    BTW....I forgot to add....thank you for your service to our country.

    I will also advice you to take comfort into consideration. I used to ride my Lario home on 72hrs-leave (some 260miles) when I was in the army, and that was a bike that was touring-friendly, still was hard on the wrists. I would recomend a bike with touring-friendly riding-position for long rides, they can still look cool/sporty/whatever The windscreen/front means less than the actual riding-position. My newest bike (MG 1100 sport Corsa) offers little wind-protection, and I rode that bike the same trip as I did my Lario with a better wind-screen, but that wasn't much of a difference. The big difference is how much weight you have on your wrists and how hard the seat is + the angle of your legs, how hard you rest your feet on the foot-rest. Feet, wrists, ass (and back, if you have a back-issue) are the factors that means somthing in the long run.

    Clipons are comfortable if you can sit on speeds over eighty MPH consistently. Under that speed they are a total PITA, and the wrists and shoulders. Even for young fit guys.
