Hey guys, I am new to the forum and to motorcycles in general. The only experience I have is 3 years riding a scooter (not in Australia). Now I just got my L's and having troubles choosing a bike. Dealers are trying to sell what they have and are not really helpful in making a decision. I am tall (194cm or 6.35 feet) and sort-of heavy (105kgs). I am planing to use bike for daily rides to work and back as well as occasional rides for fun on the weekends. Not really planning to set any speed/circuit records I really really like the look of sporty road bikes. (ones covered with plastic). I know that some will advice not to get one as a first bike because i will drop it and scratch, but plastic repairs are not an issue for me. After visiting a few dealerships, the only bike that I kinda like is 2011 Hyusung GT650R EFI. I like the look and it seems to be the biggest LAMS bike I had a chance to sit on. I have read a few forum posts about Hyusungs and their poor reliability. However, there are not many things mentioned about 2011 models. If Hyusungs are not as good, what other bikes should I look at (keep in mind that i need a big one)? What about the seating position? Clip-on, I think, it is called? How good/bad is it? It looks cool, but probably is not suitable for long rides (I am not going to do super long trips on it anyway. 100km - max). Any tips on first gear choice? Helmet and jacket? What should I look at? I guess, similar things has been asked a few times. But after a few days of research I wasn't lucky to find answers to all my questions, so I appreciate any help. Many thanks!
