This vs. That
At first I thought I wanted a Yamaha FZ6R (top pic) which is considered (by whom I don't know) an entry-level sport bike. Now, I like speed, power, and control. However, when I sat on the bike I thought, "Wow, this is big. I'm not feeling very comfortable on this." I think I could have handled it but perhaps I'm not ready.
So, I moved on to a Yamaha XV535 (bottom pic.) The picture version is a bit supped up. The one I was looking at had a basic seat. So, I have to be careful of the exhaust pipes which might burn my leg but I think this one will be OK for me. The husband offered to test ride it for me tomorrow and if it runs alright we're buying it. Oh, happy day.
