I was referring to the details on your purchase in particular. As in what other bikes you had in mind and why you finally saw this one as the best among them all.
To make a short story long, my Ural decided to lose some bearings again 8 kilometres from the campground at Port Dover for Friday the 13th.
A month later, the Ural still in the shop, I had a work call out of town.
The job finished in 2 hours so it was off the the bike shop in that town.
So here is the part you want to know.
I had no interest for any motorcycle on my mind when I went into the store, in fact I had no interest or plan in buying any motorcycle when I went into the store.
So I'll go back to my previous comment -
"Always liked the look but thought it was priced out of my range. It wasn't.
That can be said for many other bikes but I didn't go into those shops that Saturday.
Moral of the story, had the Ural not have broken down I would have been camping that weekend not working so I would never enter the bike shop to see the Vitpilen and I would never had bought it.
That bike is intriguing, but it is anything but common-place, so I'm not really sure what its closest competitor is. Considering that you posted it on a forum, I thought you might have an interesting take on the bike you'd want to share.
It is anything but common-place like my Ural and CCM and now the Husqvarna. I see a expensive trend starting to happen.
The interesting take is it may replace my Ninja.
Loved the Ninja for the city but the Vitpilen is proving to be a better city bike. Ninja stills wins for long distance travel over the Vitpilen
