I do like the idea of a bigger engine, but I don't want the extra weight. I want something that is good for two-up, but when I want to run around town it wont feel like a big beast. Plus I am trying to stay at a decent price, and get something fairly new with low miles.
I got the 750 cuz I thought it would be fine for 2-up, but I was wrong. Its fine for one. I have done some 200-250 mile trips no problem. The 900 has alot of room, man sitting on one at dealer with my wife on back was great. I knew she was their but I could lean back like I like to, wasn't going to clink helmets. But I don't want to buy another bike, and be semi regretting it. This would be my 3rd bike in 3 yrs. I do like the 750 alot, but it does have its draw backs. And I know that the 900 or bigger bikes will have theirs too.
Maybe I am just in funk cuz of the charging issues I have been having with my 750.
