    Sold my Buell

    My aging back told me it was time to sell the Buell
    Loved it but the riding position wasnt agreeing with my buggered back
    So the o0nly sensible thing to do was sell it I bought a Yamaha Verigo
    It goes great and suits my back Very comfortable
    Not ready to give up riding for quite some time yet
    Cheers

    That's the thing. There's a bike to suit most of us.

    If the one you have doesn't suit you any more, find one that does.

    Is it a Virago? I've not heard of a Verigo.

    I test rode one back in the day when offered but was a bit much from the shop.

    Like a swish VFR with a better motor. Ended up with 1050 Tiger a few years later on the back of that memory.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    Well next I downsized to a 675 but as its lighter the performance by butt experience is largely the same.
