Would love to own a Hondamatic

I just turned 53 and have decided it's time to learn to ride a motorcycle. The Hondamatic bikes seem like the best choice to learn on. I've got questions though. What would you consider to be the maximum operator weight these bikes could handle? Also, does anyone know of any Hondamatics for sale in the Kansas City area? Thanks. Richard (660) 233-2536

Editor's Reply: Richard the weight consideration would be largely determined by whether you purchase a Hondamatic 750 or 400 or 450. In either case the suspension would have something to say too. If you're close to 300 lbs these bikes wouldn't be a good choice. Thanks for your letter.
