Suzuki Boulevard C50 (Volusia) vs. Triumph America
oehlerts said 2005-07-13 05:42:14
I´m a new rider and looking to buy my first bike. I want something reliable with fairly low maintenance but most of all FUN! I was asked by my motorcycle safety instructors if I would want to become an instructor after getting some more experience so I am looking for something I can keep for a while (not something too small or underpowered that I´ll get bored with after a few months). Height is not an issue, I´m 5´10" and 150 pounds with long legs for my height. So far, I´m looking at the Suzuki Boulevard C50 (Volusia) or the Triumph America. I know the Triumph has a chain drive and have heard that you should stay away from this, especially for a first bike (don´t wanna have to mess too much with maintaining the chain). I really like both bikes and was wondering if anyone has any advice to give, personal recommendations or other links/forums I should check out? PLEASE HELP, I´m very torn!
