Ok, I'm almost 60, bit of arthritis in the wrists, short at 5'8", and 11 stone soaking wet. Still ride like I took my brain out before leaving home. Can't help it. I've ridden like this for 45 years and probably 50+ bikes. Last few bikes? Guzzi 1200 Sport (couldn't cope with the clip ons), Bmw 1150GSA (fabulous road bike but high and heavy), Triumph Scrambler (million dollar looks, bland, slow). And I still have an XT600 for the dirt roads round my house. The dirt roads shred chains and I'd like belt or a shaft. And I'm not rich! Got about £5000 max to spend on something to satisfy the inner hooligan. Preferably less. XR1200? Any particular Buell with a lower seat than the Ulysses I tried a while ago? Loved the bike but the styling is def not hooligan enough and I needed a step ladder to climb aboard!
