G'day all I was looking at getting a new bike (I sold mine (my first after passing my test aged 38!!!) a couple of years ago after a couple of near misses and having to drop it to stop going over a taxi bonnet that decided to do an "emergency left turn"! I wanted something with a bit of oomph but not too much so I was looking at a Suzuki Boulevard m50 or something similar. I will ride it at weekends mainly for a bit of a cruise, but also to commute every now and then (like today in Melbourne - bewdy weather!) into the CBD from about 25km out. what are peoples experiences of commuting on a "bigger" bike - do i take it that it is basically just a car on 2 wheels? thoughts? Also, I've got about $6k prob - is this a reasonable budget to get back up a running for the bike?
