I am in Greensburg. The more cramped side for me is not an issue, at least I don't think so. I have ridden sport bikes all of my life and have no plans of giving those up. I do a heck of alot of touring on my ZZR1200 but not with my wife. The connie we have ridden since new and have ridden it all over the north east US. I am not planning on another new bike, at least not a goldwing and am mainly looking to give my long legged brunette more space. We are not 25 anymore. I think that anything will give her more space than the Concours and I am not considering a C14 because it has less room than the current horse.
Budget, meh, I was originally hoping to stay around 5k-ish then upped it to 10k and even considered a 2010 level 2 for 13k. I do want to add a Panigale v4 to the stable over the next year or two so I may just keep the budget pretty low for this purchase. The Duc will probably be my last sport bike purchase, and I will most likely hang on to the ZZR as it has all of the baggage for solo sport touring.
There is a 1500 aspencade in Ohio that a widow is selling and it looks pretty clean with 44k on it for $4500. That seems to be leading the pack so far.
