motorcycles caused me strife

Recommended Posts

I'm in the market for a new bike. Need some advice from seasoned riders...

Any opinions on the following options?:

 

What I really need is something I can commute on all year - through the wet, icy, muddy British winter, I'm used to 60's vespas in London and ran a couple for almost 10 years but wanted a proper bike now that I live in the countryside.

 

I like the looks of these:

Moto Guzzi V7

Triumph scrambler

Are these viable options? Are they going to deteriorate through the winter? Would I be better off with a big modern scooter? These are way more practical but hard to get excited about.

I have the v7 and love it for city commute but those clip ons are excruciating on long rides .

Also if you are short statured you may have trouble straddling as my suspicion it was designed for taller riders .

Is this thread still alive?
