I'm going to dive right in here an ask for advice.
Been looking at bikes for awhile and have 3 used bikes I'm interested in. BTW, I'm 6'2" 225. Wife will ride too sometimes, she's ~120 lbs.
I "thought" I knew which one I had decided on until today. All ready to buy a 2008 v star 1100
Classic with Vance Hines pipes, 11k miles for $3800.
Then I see a 2010 with 7k miles without the aftermarket pipes for $4200.
Also saw a VTX 1300, 2006, 17k miles for $3400. I'm sure most here like the V Star better, but I'm torn. The extra 200 cc sounds nice. Not sure if I need it or if the 1100 is fine.
Last, I just saw another VTX, it's a 2002, but has a new motor with only 3900 miles, plus it's an 1800. $3700. I don't know if it's too much bike for me right now though.
Any thoughts and opinions are greatly appreciated. All have bags and windshield and sissy bar back seat.
Original plan was to buy the 2008 1100 in about 3 hours, but now I'm torn!
