I'm curious to see what other people think on this question, I have owned about 3 250's over the last 10 years and I went out and got my open bike license about 2 months ago, Now I want to upgrade to something bigger, I'm a big guy, 6 ft and about 100kgs. I am considering going to a Suzuki Bandit 1250s I just like the Idea of a big lazy softuned reliable bike, I am not a sporty rider, but I like a run up the Gillies range every now and then (I live 2 k's away from the Gillies) I commute to work and that is mainly highway work (30k's each way) I am not buying the bike for it's power or speed, I just don't want to change this bike in the near future, I intend to keep this bike for many years and for the Missus and I to cruise along with enough power in reserve to pass cars on the highway, quickly and safely. Am I going to big to quickly? Should I do a step inbetween? (EG: 600 or 750) Your thoughts?
