thinking of getting a lower, lighter bike
After having my 2017 DL650 for almost a year and putting 3000 miles on it, I have concluded that it is too top-heavy, too tall, and too heavy for me (5 ft 7" 50ish female newbie rider). I'm also just a little too small for it, having to reach for the handlebars and leaning forward instead of sitting upright. Wish I'd figured this out before I farkled the hell out of it but... I didn't.
So, any suggestions on what bikes I should look at? One fellow Stromtrooper raves about his Honda CB500X, so I will look at that. Thanks.
