A Thing about Bikes.
 
I realized this just now:

I want a bike you "hop on and go".

I have a bike you "climb aboard".

Different things.:spin::spin::spin:

Everthing has downsides, once you get what you want, you just want something else.

That's why I have Diavel.

I see the future of electric bikes as the "hop on and go" option.

Not sure what you mean. Is it the size? Complexity? Weight?

I am pretty sure you would be good with a Kawasaki cruiser (and others) as they have a less than 27" seat height and low center of gravity. A friend of ours liked riding my 800 lb 2002 Kawasaki Drifter 1500 and she is what, 5'2"?

Motorcycle Ergonomics

To check ride heights to person height. Useful tool.

I really like the bigass electric mountain bike kind of electric motorcycle, rather than a thing that tries to be an old school gasoline bike with a battery.

smaller, lighter, funner.

i SO almost bought one. its just my fear of italian...engineering...and my preference for kawasaki.

that IS a badass bike tho.

My Z900RS is tiny compared to the C14. Its a sit on and go bike. My KLR is a step stool approach to get on board. But I like them all.

I love this bike. I've bought it in 2010 and only had one issue (knock on wood) that turned out to be a split vacuum line that I fixed with some plastic tubing from HD.

I just wish I had more time to ride. Harder to do nowadays between work and family.
