Over the years I have learned a good lesson. Having been an avid mortorcyclist, boater, hunter, fisherman and totally consumed by firearms technically and practically the lesson I have learned is this:
If you are going to buy something and are offered choices whether it be size, power, options or color.......buy what you will eventually want the first time you buy. In other words, start out with what you want to end up with.
My Honda 450 was great for about six months then the 750 was under my butt for about four months and then the Harley Sportster came, then the Full Dresser.....know what I mean? My$.02.
