Hello all, I am a 50 year old fart who has decided to get back into riding after more then 25 years of inactivity. I have reserached the market via the net including this great site and come to the conclusion that either the new GSX650F or the VSTROM 650 would probably suit me best. I can't make up my mind and am keen to get your feedback. Here are some points about me which influence my choice: 1) 5"10 and 92 KG with a little back problems and not the most flexible person, i.e. looking for upright and comfortable riding position. 2) Driving profile is commuting in Melbourne during the week and some week-end driving. 3) An "easy" to ride bike (also due to my lengthy lay-off, and yes I will be doing a rider course soon to get some skills). 4) I am not a "racer".... Thanks for your thoughts.
