I will definitely look into the suggestions.
So how uncommon is it for a newbies like me to hop on straight on a 600? I mean is VLX not a starter bike as I read in most cases?
Also one of things I am trying to feel out is the “shiftability” of a bike. Since most cruisers do not have a tachometer, I understand that the rider has to feel when to shift into a higher gear. I am assuming that on a 250 it will be easier to tell than on a 600?
