Hi all, I'm looking for some constructive suggestions.
I've just landed a new job that includes a 104-mile round-trip commute (92 miles motorway, 12 miles urban). Any practical suggestions for a bike big enough for the motoway but agile enough around town. Weekend fun to be considered also.
I haven't got a bike because I've been working abroad, but I'm home now for the foreseeable future.
I have a motocross background and my last bike was a 600 Hornet.
My current thoughts are: Yamaha BT1100; KTM Duke; Triumph Street Triple/Speed Triple; Yamaha MT01/03
I'm 52yrs old, been riding since my teens and will not consider any kind of boy-racer, arse-up, head-down race-rep and I can't do big trailies (or any bike with a high seat) because I'm only 5' 3" tall.
Let me know what you think...
