Ouch! I managed to write off my Versys and fracture both of my wrists. After I recover, I'll need a new bike. Probably around $6k. Not a fan of the new "streetfighter" nakeds (saw a CB500F the other day, it had as much plastic on it as the VTR1000 parked next to it – though the MT-07 looks pretty good), or cruisers, but apart from that, I'm open to anything. I really like the CB400, but I'm not sure if it would be comfortable for someone of my height (6'1"). There was a bloke riding with us who was about my height, and his CB was giving him serious back pain. The MT-07 is still a little bit expensive – but the MT-03 (the one with the 660cc thumper) fits right within my price range, and looks really comfortable for someone of my height, though they weren't sold here for long, so I'm not sure how well it will sell after I get my full licence. Also thought about the Husqvarna TE610 and TE630, but reliability and parts availability are questionable. I could also consider a carby Triumph Bonneville (ACT licence so only power to weight limit, not engine capacity), but I don't know about comfort or reliability. Then again, I'm due to go for my Ps (once I can get the bloody u-turn right), and because I have an ACT licence, I only have a year on my Ps, so it might not be worth getting a nice bike until I get my full licence. Therefore something like an early DR650SE or XR650L might fit the bill. What should I do, decent late model bike, or old shitter?
