So I've read through a number of posts in this forum about big blokes and what people think a good first LAMS bike should be. From what I read the GS500 was the most recommended, which I like the look of, but I'm not sure it's possible with my budget. I'm a touch over 6 foot and pushing 130kg, so I 'm after a bike that will be comfortable and will have enough power to carry me along and still have power when I need it. My budget is no more than $5000- for my bike, though I'd probably want to spend less if I get a 250 and save more for an upgrade later. Given that, I have a couple of questions: Do you guys think I'll be able to find a GS500 in good condition within that price easily? I've looked around the net a lot and haven't had much luck. Are there any LAM's 250's (sports bikes) that would be comfortable for my height and have plenty of power given my size? Any other suggestions for my budget?
