need help with the size of motorcycle (old honda)?


New Member
I am basically a new rider and love the old Honda bikes (especially cafe racers). Being that I am a new rider and have a smaller frame, I know a 750 is out of the question (plus I just prefer a smaller size bike). Do you think a 550 would be a good choice? I don't want to get a bike with too small of an engine and not be able to keep up on the roadway.

I won't be taking it cross-country, but will definitely be taking it on small road trips.

Last year I had a '74 CB360 but only got to ride it a few times (under 50 because of engine problems), so I never truly got to feel the full power of the bike. Would I get bored with a 360 for being too small of an engine, and have trouble keeping up on the road?
