Hi all, Given that the cold weather is coming I assume there's a better chance of grabbing a discount with the dealers so I am thinking of an upgrade. I got my license more than a decade ago but never really started riding till about 4 years ago. I got myself a secondhand '05 Kwaka GPX250 then, and realised in a couple of days' time it's too small and too weak. I used to travel daily on the M1, 60km return trip, and got blown across 3 lanes when a semi-D flew past me. Nevertheless, I stuck with my bike until now. That's the background and now with the upgrade. Here's what I am looking for: bigger than 250, probably around 650-800 not LAMS suitable for daily commute. I ride to work in the CBD, 20km return. occasional weekend ride, once in a blue moon kinda thing, 100km return max. not a supersports, though I would love to get one but because the missus has since moved in and I have to start taking her as a pillion with this new bike, probably on a weekly basis. We all know the pillion of a supersports is not the most comfy seat in the world. a sports tourer perhaps, definitely not a tourer. budget is around $10k. Less is good, if possible. I have been looking at the FZ6R but it's a LAMS and I have been reading about removing the restrictor and all that. Don't really want to go down that path. Thanks in advance guys & gals. Cheers, N.O.L.
