I know this is really just a personal choice really but with everyone here i feel there is a broad spectrum of stories......like has anyone bought a rebuilt older bike (triumph/indian ect) if done right are they practical for everyday use? would parts be ridiculous? I love bobbers to but more into the hybrid type bikes......To many choices my head just exploded. ive also thought about a nice Nighthawk or something like that
Harleys breakdown? Dont tell my sporty! I have tomorrow off and thinking about fixing something that ain't broke just to practice what it's like.

Mike DeAngelo I have a 2008 VN 900 Classic LT and I love my bike. It's quick enough but it has legs on the open highway. I cruise at around 70 with no complaints. I had her up to 90 with north of moderate vibration. I wouldn't travel distance at that speed. When the 900 came out I was convinced this was the right move for me coming from the 750. I bought mine used two years ago and cannot stay off of it. Thirty years ago I use to say that about my girlfriend. I see lots of larger bikes out there and other bikes that run well in the city. The 900 seems to do everything well with plenty of extras out there for upgrades. I have a barons big air kit and V&H flat black slash cuts on her. Never did hook up the fuel kit as the dealer did a sweet job tuning her up with the mods. I'm currently riding without my windshield and backrest on the bike. I'm putting on a crash bar tomorrow and if I can figure it out a tachometer as well I picked up off of Ebay. There are so many of these bikes out there you can come across deals on Ebay on parts or upgrades. Good luck choosing!
