Yeah, I want something to commute on when the weather is good, and just go out and ride for fun. I don’t want to race, and I don’t really care too much about how fast the thing can go, to a point. If it can keep up with interstate traffic on occasion and not get me into trouble merging, then it’s fine.
I’m just looking for something comfortable, reasonably inexpensive to buy (most likely used), and fun to ride. My wife is already hesitant, since she says she puts up with enough dangerous stuff from me due to my job (I’m a pilot in the Navy), I don’t really want to freak her out any more than I have to by buying something too crazy.
