Today is a good day. I have been given permission by The Divine Keeper Of The Purse Strings, She Of The Fairer Sex, Her Royal Highness, Mrs Havok9, to trade up. As a result, I am soliciting ideas/advice/suggestions. At the moment I rider a '07 GS500F that I've had since new. Since June 2007 I've put 30,000k's on it. I do 300k's a week, mainly on the freeway, so I am basically looking for a commuter, but something a bit more fun than the GS. I don't really ride much outside of to and from work, so I don't want a supersports bike, so no Gixxers etc thanks. I am 6'2" and 90kg, and I want something comfortable. Budget tops out at about $12k. I have been looking at the new Ninja 650R ABS, but can't find much info about it. Yes, I am planning on hitting the dealerships and sitting on bikes etc, but I wanted to get a list of "Possibles" together first. So Netriders, please regale me with your suggestions!
