Ello lads and lassies,
So i've recently passed the new test and am looking for my first ride. I'm about 6'6", weigh a ton to boot and the CB500 I did my DAS with felt like it was struggling to cope a little. Either that or I just got bored with it very very quickly.
Personally I don't mind getting a big first bike as I know how to restrain myself when it comes to speed. However my size limits my choices a little.
I want to head in a different direction to the R1/SV650 masses and get something a little different. My current shortlist is (in no particular order):
1. Yamaha XJR 1300
2. Triumph Speed Triple
3. Victory Vegas 8-ball
4. Triumph Tiger
Quite a varied collection I know.
I've sat on all of them and seem to fit, but have not had a road test on any. Any good/bad points I need to know about this lot? Any I should be steering clear of?
Any other bikes that should be on this list?
Cheers in advance " />
