I'm new to the forums but have been reading for a while. I'm looking for some advice on what type of motorbike to get.
I'm currently riding my CBF125 on L plates. I use it to commute daily across central London and also for journeys around town. I've got a top box and have taken some luggage for weekends away. Sure it doesn't go very fast but its not too bad for A roads and is great for commuting.
I've got my theory and mod1 test booked and am thinking ahead as to what bike I could get once I pass. I'd like to continue commuting but would also like to take a passanger and be a bit more comfortable on longer distances and motorways.
I like the idea of a cruiser type bike, just for the style of it, but I'm not sure it would be so good for commuting. Maybe a Honda Shadow or Triumph Speedmaster would do the trick?
A "sensible" naked like a CBF 600 would probably be good for commuting but might not be so good for longer distances with wifey on the back.
Maybe a BMW F 650 is what I need for good all-roundedness or a Honda Crossrunner?
I'd really appreciate to hear the thoughts of the more experienced bikers out there.
