Well my 2008 GSXR is sold and I'm stuck wondering what I want to replace it with. I've become a bit of a suspension and brake snob with the gsxr but it was terrible around town and even on the road in general, if I am honest. Can't even wind the thing out in any gear without a look around for the boys in blue. I miss the bottom end of a V twin and the comfort of a sport tourer. My thoughts have been going to the new 650 V Strom. Awesome motor, comfy, nimble, great fuel range for the touring aspect but rather lack lustre suspension and average at best brakes. Throwing $1500 at the strom will have the suspension sorted but I'm still left with 19 inch front rubber. The VFR 800 has some real benefits but it's heavy and has a massive flat spot before the Vtec cuts in. I generally like low km bikes but I'm thinking if I threw $1500 at a strom, why not throw $1500 on a second hand bike that was truly a great allrounder in its day and bring it up to good nick suspension wise. What bikes do it all, good general handling in the twisties, a decent bottom end around town, nimble enough to enjoy, and has a reasonable level of comfort? I'd like to hear your thoughts.
