Took a Street Rod out today. Definitely a Different bike.
Went to start it, Had to fumble with the Starter Button. Had to really press it in.
Seat Height? I am used to my 15. With the Mustang Fastback seat. Felt almost like I was sitting on the Roadster, I'm only 5' 4". I could touch the ground. But my leg was pressing against the exhaust shield.
Power? Felt peppier off the line. Didn't beat on it. Only had a few miles.
Exhaust? Sounded better than the Stock 15. I still prefer my Firebrand GP
Control Levers? I like the Street Rods better than mine.
Pedals? Going to take me some time to get used to them. I kept thinking they were more forward and lower like my 15.
Handling? Handled pretty good. Having New tires, I didn't lean into the turns.
My Biggest issue is, The Cropped tail section. My 15 has Saddle and Trunk bags. Luggage rack. And I do use them.
I left a $100 Deposit. Now I am thinking about just getting it back. Financial Constraints. Just started a FT job. At a County Landfill. Running an Agitator at a Compost Center. 6 month contract through Aerotek. I am going to make better money, Just left Home Depot who paid me decently. But gave few(20-30) Hours per week. So I have not been able to save any extra. The New payment would be $203 Month. Negative Equity from the 15. Current payment is $192. He was going to sell me the Denim model for $8500 + Setup Fees. Almost $500 off
Insurance? I'm told it wouldn't cost me any more to transfer to the 17 model. But the 15 should be going down in August. Rider Insurance P2 rating. 2 year old bike.
