Hi guys,it's been a while now I'm looking at this as my next bike,joined here as there's lot of knowledge around,will start with a simple question.
I'm around 6'.2',quite thin (82kgs) with long legs
,do you think this bike is ok my height? Is there anyone with similar dimensions to give his feedback?
Unfortunately no test ride available around here (Athens-Greece) ,I've been on it static,found it ok altough i look a bit huge on it in a foto,but riding it is always an other story.I plan to do almost everything with it,fast riding in twisty roads but also some big km travelling in Europe except of commuting as a I have a scooter for that.
My background is from street bikes mainly,many superbikes over the years but as getting older (49) i look for something more relaxed and allround.My current bike is a CB1300 which I love for it's smooth motor and quality ride but I want something lighter and sportier .I wonder though if ninja's motor is as smooth and torqey as CB's,if someone has ridden both please report.
I know that at my height I would be better on an adventure style bike,I test rode many of them but as much I hate their looks ,I also have a lower back problem and the riding stance of these bikes give me some pain after a while.The only one I liked of them was the BMW S1000XR but then it's very expensive and don't really want to be a BMW owner
Any help is much appreciated as I can;t afford a wrong purchase at all!
