I agree with that. The California is a very nice looking bike and the other two aren't.

What are the rubber pads for? My shins were very close to them and thought it would feel better whacking my legs on them than the cylinder heads.

I'm 6' with a 33" inseam and my knees were real close. They have bars in back of the cylinder heads to protect you I assume. I was cramped sitting on it although I never road it. The Breva seemed...

I had one of those. I bought it used with 2500 miles in it in 1981 (?). I loved it. This one hardly has any miles on it. What the heck happened to the ends of the speedo and tach needles?

I clicked on the Ducati and the Cadillac clip came up and started counting down from 30. I closed it at 28. Too bad he did that. I guess you can never have enough money.

It is a beautiful bike. I sat on one in the dealership. My shins were up against the bars in back of the cylinder heads and my knees were too high. If you are 5'8" or under it would probably fit OK.

That bike doesn't look good now and the Jap bikes do not age well IMO. I mean the sportbikes. The old Z1 still looks great. Jap sportbikes from the 80s and early 90s look very dated to me.

I think used bikes are always a good way to go - beginner or not. You can usually find what you are looking for with not many miles on it for much less than a new one.

A Bonneville is a good one....
