I'm sure you'll discover some solutions in regards to modifying to suit your needs.Phantom is an awesome cruiser. I would totally recommend it. I've test ridden the CB300F today and my dealer is going to give me a decent deal.. but... I have some questions that I will look for guidance..
1. Seat lowering
2. Handle bar risers
After two shoulder surgeries in two years, reach and comfort is important. Thoughts?
I think the 300F would be ideal. Probably the only negative, in my opinion, is that it has little torque low down, which makes relaxing rides in curvy country an exercise in left foot tap dancing. I am myself a former rider of big bikes and I still find myself exiting turns in too low a gear, waiting for torque that never arrives. When you're carving, this is less of a problem, because keeping the engine on the boil is part of the fun. When just riding to chill out, a bigger engine is much more relaxing. On my XJR1300 (for instance), I would click, click, click all the way up to top gear, and then mostly just leave it there......I plan to keep the Phantom for the longer distance rides which include highways, etc. But I'm looking for an upright bike that handles the corners with a little less effort than the Phantom......
