Thanks for the input guys. The bikes that interest me so far and I have ridden have been the Multistrada, KTM Super Duke and a Buell. There is one other bike that I might take a look at which is the Triumph Tiger. But the looks of the HM is whats holding me back from buying anything until I can sit on it and then make up my mind.
What I want in a bike is something that isn't heavy; just want to throw my leg over it and ride, thats why I'm looking at these v twins; all though the Triumph Tiger is a 3 cylinder. I am 51 and I still like bikes; as I grew up on them since I was 12. I am really hoping the HM is comfertable enough to go riding.
06800SS - When I rode the Multistrada I could get the balls of my feet on the ground if that is how the HM is then I see no problem with the bike being too tall. If the seating position is close to what I'm looking for I could try bar risers to get even more of a up right riding position. Has anyone used bar riser on this bike yet? I live in Wisconsin and there is only one Ducati dealer in the state, I'm lucky though the dealership is only about 20 miles away
The sales guy said they were getting another HM in November so I will be going back then to check it out.
Thanks again for your help.
