They are a good bike. Look sporty without the massive power.

Bike shop near me called Not your average bikes has one in for sale.

tip .... show your cash wad then test ride as many motorcycles as you can for minimum of 50 miles before making a decision.

Something reliable.

Easy to ride that's not got heaps of power but does everything well.

Honda cb650r. It's not flash some may say boring but to a new or returning rider it's all you need

I would generally advise people to pick a bike with no fairing as their first BIG bike. You "will probably" drop it and it takes very little to damage plastics. With a naked bike, you're only likely to bump handlebars and foot-pegs when you indignantly plonk it on the floor whilst trying to turn round in a carpark.

ER6 (ER5) engine is bullet proof. It’s a good big bike. You don’t need anything quicker in the road.
