What did you reckon?
I quite liked it but the exhaust would have to go as it baked my leg. I found a system in France that was underslung and was quite neat but the pillion area was too small and high for my wife but I preferred the T120 Black anyway.
It chuntered along quite nicely and I could easily have lived with it as a solo bike.

I loved it. I'm torn between this and the Street Twin which, for the reasons you highlighted, might be the better option... and a little cheaper to boot!

I would go the Scrambler route personally but, assuming you are looking at the 900, please try the 1200 options first as they are massively better once you start getting used to the bike. I ended up being disappointed with my Street Twin for a number of reasons.

Inside one of our 400 year old stone barns, above where I store wood, lime, cement, plaster, firewood, diy tools. I'm in and out all the time and they just pretty much ignore me unless I'm just where they want to fly !
