Hey guys, from everything I've read here and done my homework on I think I'm better suited on something a little smaller. I don't particularly care for all of the power. I already got one 6 demerit point $490 ticket that I managed to get away (cop didn't file the paperwork), I'm not going to keep on tempting myself and the piggies.
I'll probably end up going with a Ninja 650R, which I like the upright ergonomics of it and the fact I can grab an '06 with 11,000 kilometers for the same price as the '99 Sprint with 50,000 kilometers. An FZ6R or FZ8R isn't out of the picture either.
I hope no one feels like their time was wasted. I do appreciate the advice you guys gave, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this site or a triumph to anyone simply on account of the following this place has. It seems like everyone's willing to help each other out... not always the case with a lot of other forums lol.
Cheers guys (and girls). Ride safe, but have fun
