The bike would mainly be used for commuting to and from work, but I'd take a lot of rides for fun after work, and go for rides to the Great Ocean Road, the Spur and such on weekends. Thus, I'd like something sporty but not something so hardcore I'd be uncomfortable on it after a few minutes, especially given my size (6'3", 105kg or so). In order of importance, I guess I'm looking for: Reliability Fun factor Comfort Handling Straight line performance. I don't need a 190mph top speed, but a 250 isn't going to cut it either (except for a 2T, but I don't want to daily-ride one of those again). I prefer fully-faired stuff, but a semi-naked or naked bike might work as long as I like the looks. I'll freely admit I'm a bit of a wanker in that respect, it's gotta look good My budget is $4,500-6,000 depending. Ideally $5,000-5,500. Right now my top contenders are the F3 and F4, but I'm not really sure what else to look for. So, any suggestions?
