Hey all, first post! I'm looking at getting a bike to enjoy for a bit of fun and to commute on. I do too many km in the falcon! I travel from Sydney to Wollongong for work each day, round trip of ~120km. After a little bit of research, I'm thinking of either a 250 ZZR or GSX (or something along those lines), or a GS500f, because I prefer the fairings rather than the naked look. My concern though is will a 250 be suitable for highway driving every day? I would prefer to stay with the 250 as it is a damn sight cheaper and I will probably upgrade when I can anyway. But if it's not safe I'll save a bit more and go for the GS500F and hang onto it for a bit longer. Oh and it's a given that I'll be doing plenty of practise on quiet streets before I hit the main roads. Thanks guys!
