Depends on the type of riding you plan on doing. If you want nice and smooth highway, run from Harley. All that shaking gets old quickly. After being a bike mechanic for Kawi, and riding for 40yrs.,owning 30 or more bikes, I'd stick with sport touring now , preferably Jap. bikes. If you wanted fancy pants, maybe BMW, Ducatis sound like someone shaking a bucket of marbles around for an engine.
