Thoughts on getting a motorbike
I want to be become a motorbiker. I have close access to some of the quietest motorway, A roads and with Argyll off roads as well. I want to cruise and 'green lane', not race or scramble. I have ridden a motorbike many years ago off road, but do not have a license so I would be starting from scratch. I would also want to use it all year round and to be able to use it to go camping.
My short list as such is the BMW F650/800GS, Honda XL700V Transalp, Kawasaki Versys and Suzuki V-Strom 650. I figure that they will be manageable as a starter, be big enough for me (I am the same size as Martin Clunes if that helps) and to do the above wish list.
Has anyone got any experience of those bikes or alternatives?
