I'm new to the riding scene and have only been riding my Derbi Atlantis bullet 50cc scooter around for the past year:P but its time for me to get my first bike! I've been very interested in the suzuki 2009 GSX-R600 as well as the 2009 Bandit 1250S ABS im not too sure if i should go with 600 or 750cc though... also i like suzuki but are there other bikes along the price range of 8 - 12 000 new that are really good like these two? i plan on possibly riding between vancouver and kelowna (a decent 4 hour ride) and style does matter a fair bit to me.. any suggestions of reliable bike models out there? are these two decent for the price? any and all info or suggestions are appreciated greatly, thanks all!
