I kinda got it down to the Ninja 250 but to be honest mostly because I cant even find a Buell(and we have a harley delaer that sells them 1/2 a mile away) locally used for sale at a decent price….the Harley place right now has 3 250 Ninjas in their place and only 1 brand new Buell Blast..thats it…August 4, 2008 at 5:42 pm #9873MunchParticipant
I am proud owner of a Vulcan…. So far I am getting 55 (tad over) mpg. But of course thats all back roads and a little bit of rider break in , which means more throttle and clutch in an abnormal amount of “same time”. This week will be all to work and back which is 36 miles straight highway, if it improves I will let you know.
Oh and I am 5’10” 180 maybe 190″ depending if I’ve gone to the gym that week or not. In case your that much of a number cruncher.August 4, 2008 at 6:26 pm #9879ShannonGParticipant
I dont’ care for the looks of the Blast, but that’s just personal preference. If you’re interested in a ‘forever’ bike I would lean towards the 500.August 4, 2008 at 8:38 pm #9891CBennettParticipant
Yeah, i went down to a couple of the shops today and they DO have a older GS500 coming in(so i assume its gonna be a E) but I think being a dealer its STILL gonna be over my limit to spend..probably closer to 3000 then $2000. And yeah, to be honest id be ok with a Blast..I sat on the new one in the showroom that they tried to sell me for almost $5000…I liked its size..id have liked the higher seat they have the one I sat on had the lower seat. but as far as fit and looks went id take it in a heartbeat if it was say a 2001-2002 in my price range .August 5, 2008 at 8:43 am #9932BoOZe P-ti MotardParticipant
