Well ive been tip toeing around the idea of getting a commuter for a while now. Having a hot italian sitting around next to me at work in my office, is bound to make some of the female staff jealous. So, with the servicing of the italian being a very taxing process, ive decided to turn her into a weekend warrior. I love the bike, and she has performed fantastically in the role of commuter, but its a bit of a worry having the bike all day at work. Too many ignorant people dont realise there walking withing 5 metres of my bike, is invading its personal space. So its time to get something to commute. The finalists are... Honda cbr 125r Kawasaki klx 250r Yamaha wr250 Thats not the final list, but there the ones that jump at me. Honda cbr 125r As my review stated, i do love this little bike, i think its very entertaining, fuel effecient and fun. Pro's - Cheap (4k on road) Fuel effecient Fun Traffic friendly Service friendly Con's No way on the highway(only a weekend thing anyway i spose) Lack of power Being laughed at(i spose i can deal) Being dropped by scooters Now that bike seems to suit one purpose, and one purpose alone, the kwaka and the yamaha are trail bikes, and they look very comfy seating position wise. They will also double for a bit of a buzz around the bush. How do these bikes handle the commuter role, technically speaking, tight turning circle, comfy position, and 2nd ability(trail work) make it a good choice. I suppose it comes down to the fuel? Will they do 120 for highway work? So are there any thoughts or suggestions for this? Trail bikes as commuters?
