Why not have a Fox?
As the title states, I'm a newb and I'm tossing around the idea of getting a bike. I like speed bikes and all, but I think I'd prefer a twin V (I think that's the right term?) cruiser, but not a grandpa cruiser will all the bags and weighs too much. A guy I work with has a son who has a 650 V Star (not sure what year, but I'd guess it might be 5 years old?) that is pretty slick looking. His son buys and sells a lot so if he puts it up for sale by next spring I may buy it. But I don't know how likely the chances of that happening are so I'm looking for opinions. I very open to suggestions. I think my budget would be around $3k for a bike, but I don't want a junker that I'd have to work on all the time, so if that's not a reasonable budget I could bump it up a bit. Thanks!
