Hello all, first time posting as I just got my license the other day passing my mod 2 riding in the snow!
That however was really easy compared to working out which bike I should buy. Totally confused by the options and any advice would be great.
Budget: I can manage around £4000 a year including bike and insurance payment.
Style: Sports tourer
Annual mileage: 60 miles a day commute to work means 14000 miles a year! Note this killing resale value of possible purchase.
Riding experience: Ridden XJ6 and CBF600 for a few days.
So given my requirements it seems a CBR600F would be a good fit. I agree (without having ridden one) but I have always like the Triumph Street Triple.
Will the fairing on the CBR make a big difference to which I should buy?
Should I buy new (0% interest on CBR atm) knowing that the mileage on the bike will probably lower the resale value in a couple of years when I'll prob want a different bike?
Or should buy a used Street Triple and worry less about any depreciation?
totally confused, any help def appreciated
PS I live just around the corner from Brands Hatch. Def planning on going down there with either bike.
