Hey guys I have had my Ls and been riding for over 3 months now. I've got a 2007 Suzuki GS500E. I am turning 30 in a month and will sit my Ps test just after my birthday and hopefully will get a full licence straight away (mature aged rider exemption). I love my GS but I think I am going to be ready soon to upgrade... I am looking for a bike that I'll be able to keep for a few years without getting bored. The thing is I don't exactly what to get... Should I go for a midweight or directly for a 1000cc?? I don't commute to work anymore but will probably have to do it again soon when we move out of our place. I love taking my bike for big rides on the week end. I do hundreds of ks on the week end. I guess I won't be able to take my missus on the back for a while so probably no big road trips with my bike. Commuting will always be quite short since I work in Sydney CBD and intend o stay in the eastern suburbs or maybe Northern suburbs but not far. I am a big fan of naked bikes. I'd like a bike that looks different. For eg. I sat on a Shiver 750 the other day and loved it. I really like the looks of that bike and also I realised that my GS is a bit too low for me. I've reasonably long legs and the Shiver felt really comfy compared to my GS... My budget would probably go around the $15,000 mark 5that would be a max). I would be grateful for any comments/suggestions.
