Appreciate the input guys.
Well, got an unexpected bit of free time this morning so popped off to a dealer who had three in the showroom.
Very decent guy, had a demonstrator which i took out for a spin...and that's when the truth hit.
Loved the engine characteristics, enough perfomance for me, brakes were ok, equipment ok what little there is of it, loved the looks and the character of it...
...just couldn't deal with the riding position.
I have been convincing myself that whatever it was like, i would be fine but it isn't so, i felt very cramped and not particularly in control, i felt more like i was sitting under rather than on it and knowing the journeys it would typically be used on, i don't feel it's right cor me.
No doubt it's a super little tool and probably a hoot to ride, just not for me.
