I rock an 82 FT500 Ascott. I love the bike, It's an awesome city machine. i've got it geared right now to top out at around 65 (redline 5th) but it gets there quick.

I wish we had a tiered licensing system over here too, it would save a lot of inexperienced riders from going out and buying a 100hp+ bike for their first bike...lots of bike related deaths because of that, which makes bikes look less safe than they are.
Rider training should be required for a street bike.

I've gotta get my endorsment renewed so I can start riding again but I ride an '08 Yamaha R6 that I bought with 2 tenths of a mile on it. Right off the showroom floor.

Now the weather needs to get better so I can ride it to save gas :roll:

So, the 225 is not living up to the expectations of a 300 pound guy... so I'm thinking about upgrading to either a Kawasaki KLR650 or a Triumph Tiger 800.. what u think?

Go with the KLR, it's a great bike, and has been around forever, so used parts are easy to come by...and has lots of aftermarket...
