Thinking of getting back in the saddle
I've been sans bike now for over three months and it is absolutely killing me. I desperately want to get back on that horse. The major thing holding me back is that my family is going to be very nervous about it.
(quick re-cap for those of you not on the forum about 3 months ago...I totalled my 2006 VN750 on I-270 at about 50 mph thanks to some recent road construction...bastards)
But, I'm not sure I can hold out much longer. I've been scouring craigslist and ebay just about every day. But, I'm leaning toward getting another brand new bike. Since they no longer make the VN750, my options are to pick up one of the few 2006's still on the shelf, grab a 2005-2006 with few miles, or go to another bike.
So, here's my question, and I apologize for the blasphemy...have any of you driven a Suzuki Boulevard M50? What are your thoughts in comparison to the VN750? Any known mechanical or electrical issues (like our well-known R/R and rear spline lube problems)?
I'm still on the fence both about getting a bike at all and between whether to get an old VN750 or another model. But, I do like the looks of the blacked out version of the M50.
Best to all!
