General natter more than anything. Had my 12 yr old Hornet 600 for a few months now and quite enjoying the old return to biking lark after quite a few years. I use it mainly to get in and out of London with the odd hack at weekends. Only dropped it once because twat features wasn't watching what he was doing and I generally behave myself on it because I really, really don't want to bend myself. Thing is, I'll be posted in about a years time and doubt that I'll be using it for a daily commute again (I hope) but don't want to stop biking altogether. Whilst the Hornet is good fun, the handlings twitchy and it dives like a git under heavy braking which I really don't like very much. I'm also not a massive fan of the unfaired business as well. So, in twelve months time I'm looking to change. I'd like something bigger - 750 upwards, not a sports bike but not something that is pipe and slippers as a quick hoon around the country lanes is huge fun. Budget about 4k or less. What do you esteemed ARRSE bikers reckon?
