What a beautiful bike

By the time I started Riding, The British bike industry was all but finished.......Most people had long since discovered the world of Reliability and technical advancements in the form of Japanese Bikes. In my Circle of Biking chums..... British bikes were Scorned ..........not ever having ridden any, I can't really comment but I can certainly see the appeal of having these bikes and was really impressed with Keith's little collection. Keeping these machines for future generations to be able to touch feel and better still, ride......has to be a good thing.
My little old Suzuki ZR50 X1....is a really crap bike all things considered but it's 36 years old and getting pretty rare.....only 1 was registered on the road last time I checked........ Mine is in a poor state but I've been collecting all manner of bits and pieces...(mostly "New Old Stock" ) with the intention one day.... to rebuild it to "as new"......... gravel has always worried me truth be known !

I wouldn't get that one, the weight of the bike on your back dragging you backwards is a killer especially when fell walking.

So I'm told.

First Big Bike Ideas

Hi,

I'm looking at getting my first big bike and would like to get peoples opinions on several options I'm considering. The bikes I'm considering are:

Suzuki SV650
Kawasaki ER6F
Honda CBR500
Honda CBR650F
KTM RC390

The bike would mainly used for commuting and short runs so a compact size and manoeuvrability are most important to me. But I'd also like to do some touring with my friends, so comfort and adaptability is also important.

I'm after a good balance of power. Enough power to comfortable over take a car at motorways speeds, and not high revving and vibrating when cruising at 70, whilst not being too much to handle for a first big bike.

At the moment my preference is towards the Honda CBR650F because of its versatility but I'm unsure if the power might be a little excessive. Although I'm use to owning cars with 350+bhp I understand bikes are a different animal.
