A couple of my biker friends (one rides a Harley, the other a Shadow) both gave me that "Hmmmmm...." when I told them that I'd bought my 750. I was told that I'd outgrow it in a relatively short period of time and would wish that I had bought something bigger. I've looked at the 900. I'm not thrilled with its looks and it just felt too big to be my first bike. I don't see me "outgrowing" my 750 anytime soon. Heck, I'm just getting started (received the bag supports the other day. Need to go put them on!).
