Hi all, Just joined this forum. Looking to make some new friends, learn a bit more about motorcycles and get some honest, unbiased opinions and advice. About me: 27, single, no kids but I am the breadwinner at home (my folks live with me and I pay the bills). Have had a bike since 2013, still have the same bike - a Suzuki 250 across. I'll post some pics later. It's a great bike, for those of you that don't know, the across is a unique motorcycle that has an electronically operated helmet compartment where the fuel tank normally is. The actual fuel tank is on the back, and is a bit small (12 litres I think). Anyway, I will be selling it soon to get another bike, cause I just want to try something different. I would prefer something with a bigger tank. A good friend of mine recommended the Triumph Daytona 675, I haven't ridden one, but a used one is a bit out of my price range anyway (4K max). I spent the last weekend on my friend's Yamaha MT-07, and my other mate's Triumph Street Triple. Both lovely machines, and easy in city traffic (Triumph just a bit smoother in slowing down for a roundabout and heavy traffic). However, after riding these delightful machines, I now feel that I am a 4 cylinder guy (I don't have the heart to tell my mates), I just love the high pitch high rev screaming of a 4 cylinder engine (the across redlines at 16k). The same mate that recommended the Daytona, recommended the Yamaha R6, which seems like a great bike in spite of lacking a fuel gauge. I think this bike may be a bit fast for me though, I don't really plan on tracking it cause I'm not a very fast rider but you never know. I would love to meet some of you for group rides, and to get your general advice on bikes as well. I am looking for something that's comfy for long distance riding (the across really isn't uncomfortable for riding long distances), good fuel range, and I like lightness more than power. I also ride like a grandma, I stick to the speed limit, never take it out in the rain and don't lane filter.
