I got it wrong
Well today , i took my bike for a service , and today was the day i was going to test ride the new v ,,
iN MY PREVIOUS THREAD seen it today, i went on to say how suprised i was that the new vee was shorter than i thought it was going to be .
I GOT IT WRONG , when i previuosly sat on it i dunno it was on grass , maybee there was a hump in the grass , but i was on the balls of my feet ,
Today , it was on the tarmac and there was a slight camper to the left , but not unlike most roads , Anyway i swung a leg over and i could'nt come anywhere near touching the otherside of the road .
I went to pull the bike up and just could not get any leverage , it was definetly taller than my wee before i altered it , the height to me felt the same has the previous dl 1000 , which is slightly taller than the 650 .
I did'nt struggle and get it up because , heh its not my bike and i did'nt want to drop it before i even rode away , so i just took the keys back ,
Whats it all mean , to most guys probably nothing , but to me has a , stumpy legged , gorrlla type of guy its too tall , , would it stop me buying one, yep sure would ,
The wee , well even though it was tall , it was still a bike i could throw my leg over and ride and not worry to much at lights , just slide off a bit to the side , the vee , no way its just out of reach enough that it would get dropped regular ,
The wee couple of dollars and i can lower it enough , but the vee , lowering links would'nt be enough , so it would mean having it done by a suspension specelist , before i even brought it home , add another 8-900 dollars .
Glad i'm happy with the wee ,
