hey people, im new to the world of bikes and im looking for a bike to learn/commute on. i would prefer to get a sporty 250 (eg: cbr) but.. a) they're not really for commuting IMO b) im a big dude (178cm, 125kg.. spending too much damn time lifting weights) so i was considering buying a hyo gt650r.. and i know, a lot of people either love them, or hate them. but it seems like a really good option for me. are there any other LAMS bikes that wouldn't exceed my budget ($8000, including all my gear and associated bike costs)? also im not a fan of naked bikes (my OCD okay).. thanks in advance for any help! PS: one of my work mates is selling his gt650r ('07 model, 2000km) for $7500.. is that a good deal or can i get better (don't want any pre '06 models)?
