I have another 6 months to go before my LAMS restrictions expire but am already planning a list of potential upgrade bikes. I am not averse to the idea of something like an 1198SP or Streetfighter, BMW R1200 R, H-D 48, Triumph Speed Triple etc. These are all powerful and expensive bikes. However, would this be an unwise idea? Am I better off getting a mid-range bike for a couple of years to gain some more experience first? Although bikes are relatively new for me, I am an older learner (40) and consider myself to have the self control to ride sensibly and responsibly, that's why I ask the question.
