I've been to this many times before: musing over bikes. How hard can it be to decide which bike to get? Apparently very hard.
I know that for some this thread is totally irrelevant. But here seem to be many, who have also other bikes than scoots. And also many, who are on a life long journey to get "that next bike".
So while I do some test rides, who knows, mayby I'll notice something usefull for someone else too. So these are my wee epic rides: testing and musing over bikes.
Before rambling on, let's get this straight: I'm a shorty. Very light weight with that: 173 cm / 5.7 ft, 63 kg / 139 kbs. With short arms. In the world of bikes, these qualities mean a lot. And limit a lot. When I had the 125cc Sprint, I could not flat foot both feet at the same time. OK with a 125kg bike & automatic transmission & hand brakes, not very nice when the weight increases....also, my 139 lbs do little to help keeping a stationary bike upwright, if I loose the sweet point of balance and have weak connection to the ground.
