So, I've basically figured out what I want and have taken all people's opinions on a GS500F in to account. Having said that, I did just ask a mate and he said not to go the route of a 500 but rather an older 250 that'll go harder. Personally, I wouldn't mind keeping the 500 when off restrictions as a rounabout, and get a fair weather/weekender big bike. Being a fat arse but also a short one at that, I figured it'd be better to go a 500 and have more pull when necessary. Suggestions?
