I just got my liscence this spring and am commuting daily to North Van from Abbotsford on a wheezy gs400. I was given the bike from my brother-in-law that bought it new in 82. I put new tires and replaced the exhaust, mucked with the carbs and it runs great but its a little underpowered for the highway.
My plan was to get into the 600 to 800 cc next year. I am thinking of the FZ6, the SV650S or possibly a 5th generation VFR (pre Vtec, heard some like/dislike vtec and linked brakes) I have not ridden any of these bikes but would like some input from some seasoned riders on my next bike. I really like the looks of the FZ6 and the riding position. The VFR is a very comfortable bike, or so I have heard and its no slouch being an 800....SV650..no comments yet.
