the time has come to go test riding, I've so far narrowed it down to the Kawasaki Z1000, Honda CB1000 and Suzuku B-King. I'm 182cm tall, so after a bigger bike... been riding a GPX 250 and apart from looking like a gorilla on a mini bike I tend to get quite bad cramping on it. At the moment I don't deal with a lot of traffic, so lane filtering isn't an issue. Also not too fussed with power, at the risk of sounding like a blouse the b-king on paper looks to have way too much I've also contemplated a cruiser, ridden them a few times found them comfortable but since i'm not middle aged, nor do I ride in gangs I don't think its me :grin: Open to suggestions, was considering the speed triple but it looks a bit small? I'd really like to have a list prepared rather than be pushed what ever the dealer wants to sell that particular week.
