Hi folks, Just got my L's and like many others I'm looking for some help finalising my first bike choice. Apologies in advance for the novel-length post - trying to cover all bases in one go. I'm 46 years old,106 kilos, 6"1, with no previous riding experience (but my 1st ride was like coming home - loved it). Will be riding to work daily - short suburban commute (Parramatta area), 4 or 5 decent getaway rides each year (500 + klm round trips), and as many "just because" rides as I can - the wife will likely determine the frequency of these Need to keep what I buy now for 4 or 5 years. Culled the list to these 5: 2015 Triumph Street Triple 660 2015 Yamaha MT 07 2015 Kawasaki Vulcan S 2015 Kawasaki ER-6nl ABS 2015 Kawasaki Ninja 650 Rode the MT - decent, comfortable, and quite forgiving bike, but seemed to be working quite hard on the short freeway blast we did - but that might be totally normal for a new bike with 600 klm on the clock. Sat on the ER-6nl ABS and Street Triple 660 (test rides booked for early Jan). Like the look and feel of both, but the 660 just felt "right". Test rides will confirm. Cruisers don't usually catch my eye but pics of the Vulcan (in black or green) left me open-mouthed, and if it's available before I've bought a bike I will give it a shot. The 660 seems to best meet my needs, and while I can afford it, I wouldn't be upset to spend a bit less. Lastly, I'm happy having an alarm fitted to reduce insurance - on top of quality chain, disc lock & unbranded cover (considering kill switch too) - but I've heard very few positives on alarms. Words of wisdom appreciated. Thanks in advance for any advice/experience/comments. Cheers.
