Great post..Just rode the bobber and bobber 60 back-to-back. I gotta say, I was really impressed with the 60. I'd love a little more torque near idle on the clutch uptake, but it doesn't skimp on the top end. Once it comes on cam, I was just as happy with the 60 as the 69. Of course, the 69 is faster. I've no disillusions about that. For me though, the experience isn't worth the extra coin. I'll spend on the solo seat and LED headlight instead.
FWIW, I'm a 2nd-year rider coming from a Vulcan S650.
Love Momz. Only thing that makes me sad living in TN now!
Yeah I'm going to miss the vulcan. Such a unique mix of sportbike and cruiser. It got smacked in the parking lot in October last year. Would have rebuilt it but MI insurance laws are bullsh!t. Now with the 60 the bobber is in my price range. Anyways, much more growth potential in the bobber it seems! There wasn't much headroom in the vulcan (and, IMO, it'll just never sound the part).Great post..
Seems you have good taste in machines. The V650 is a GREAT bike too, and I'm not the biggest fan of Kawasaki..
