What first model, please advise

#1 Unread post by futurac » Fri Aug 28, 2020 2:30 am

Dear, first post, question.
i am 50y.o, and never drove a bike, got interest to start driving motorbike. the idea is more for weekend tours, for me and my lady.

we have special driving school which i went and did full day of formation training, at the end we could drive some hours.
i was advised to get some lessons and i took with moto specialist, i rented bmw750gs for weekeend, and we did 2x2h of full training. ended in motorway at 120kmh drive.

in some days i have another full day of training, next step after the first one.
biggest question is - what bike to get next.
I am very careful, kind of scared, but i guess its related to experience.
maneuvers are slowly coming, but it takes time, turns, 8, etc..

i liked the 750gs, also very interested in yamaha tracer 900
i am between some opinion groups.
1- some friends, who are experienced saying to go for big one, since in some months i will get used to it.
2- other friends says to go for small bike 300cc+- and get used to it.

please share your idea and advise
thanks in advance

Sounds like you'll easily outgrow 300cc bikes.750GS and Yamaha Tracer are good bikes, it's just a matter of how comfortable a bike to you.

You should try first with some easy one in order to avoid any unwanted situation! There is a chance to get an accident with 300cc or more! I will never be late in my office as I use Yamaha for transportation for my office.
