Welcome. It all depends on your riding style, but after a StreetBob my punch will be towards the 750.

Dang, I'm only 5'7"....not tall by any means. Granted, I've gotten used to only putting my left leg down at stops because of the exhaust hanging off the right side. I won't mention the issue with my hips.

Welcome to the forum, Rowan.
As Propnut says, your riding style is going to determine which bike you are going to be happy with. I was considering changing bikes or getting a second one just a few months ago. As I looked at other motorcycles the question I kept asking was "What does this bike get me that my Street 750 I have does not deliver?"
So what need does a smaller, less powerful, quieter motorcycle than the Street Bob fill for you?
