I currently ride a k1200rs but am finding it too heavy.
I will probably stop riding in 3 years time when I reach 60 so:
What bike would any of you recommend for my last hurrah. I commute to work, 17 miles each way along minor roads where I need the acceleration to get past the 40mph brigade.
I also do a 130 mile ride 20 times a year along the M25/A3 to the Isle of Wight.
I have a bad back so the extreme postion sports bike is no good for me, I tried a S1000RR which was great fun but after 40 minutes I couldn't straighten up for about half an hour.
Your suggestions please, I will be able to spend up to £8000 and am not hung up on buying a new bike.
