Default Tentative Octane/Scout60 buyer

Nice forum, much better than the lamo honda VT cafe.
Quick past history- out of biking for 22 years and back in '13. Quick thru a 650 star classic,1100star custom, then a Warrior I had finished with my extensive mods only to have a pickup pull in front of me totalling the bike(minor rash), rep
laced impulsively with a Stateline along with adding GSXS750 for grins.
Totalled the GSX and took a major concussion doing it and on the rebound now.
Now that Vic has ceased, one of my area dealers is already liquidating and looking either to an Octane or Scout 60 once I get cleared to ride again
I'm trying to make the Honda work, but I can't get past the 40 deg rake.

Looking like you need a Hummer and not another motorcycle "Crash" chutta. When you returned to riding did you take a rider course? Sorry if I come off preachy, but having been riding since 1952 and having taken lots of courses, I know their value and if you haven't had a course, I strongly advise you do.
