Hi everyone I'm looking for my new bike now that I'm off restrictions, and I thought I'd get your(collective) thoughts on my choices. Im basically looking at an older 600 sport, a 1999-2001-ish ZX600, CBR600F or R6. I know I should go out and sit on them etc, but this question comes from another perspective, as im also looking at another genre/class of bikes, a newer SV650/s or Er6n, second hand if my budget can stretch. the reason for my upgrade is that the VTR250 runs out of (decent)acceleration after about 100kmh, and i want something with longer legs. i also want something i can pillion easily as well, my father can no longer ride even though he is the sprightly age of 50, and id love to take him on some rides, maybe longer ones too. so will the high up power on the supersports be too much of a hit for my self control(lacking at times... acceleration is too much fun) or should i be sensible and go for the more reliable(?) and perhaps comfortable SV or ER6?
