So I am looking at moving up to a litre bike and am looking for some feed back. I don't want anything older than 2009/10. Looking mainly at day trips and I ride to work every day (40 km each way), maybe some touring(nothing major though). As for me I am 5'7" and 155 lbs so size wise I don't get to cramped on too many bikes. I'm not terribly brand specific.
So what would you be looking to buy if you were me, and why?
