Hi all I'm a early 30's shunter just moved to Tassie, work moved on me so I had to pounce and get a cheap mode of transport. So now I'm riding around on a postie bike on my L's, and I'm looking for a slightly larger bike to get around september. The postie can't handle the constant max revs to work, I'm about to change the big ends in her. Right now I have the option of taking a different route which is only 60 all the way so its not a problem, but come september I'll be moving house and the two different routes are 80 or 100 all the way, so the big ends will not last (and its a perfect excuse to get something bigger) So I've been looking at the Royal Enfield Classic Battle Green, but I hear mixed reports. People who have them love them and the people who don't have them say they are riddled with problems. Its causing me some confusion, I just want to buy a reliable bike with classic styling that is LAMS approved for no more than 8-9k If I did buy a bike for that much, it pretty much needs to last 10-15 years, until I pay off a mortgage and can then get my dream bike (Bonneville) Anyone have any suggestions? Something I was considering was a 70's Bonneville, as that meets LAMS, any other suggestions?
