I'm in the middle of taking my drivers license and now I've gotten to the point that I need my own bike to be able to get my license all done.
I'm a quite small guy, only 5''10 and about 150lbs (I think that's the conversion from 65 kg and 180cm). Anyways I've ridden a BMW f800r at my driving school and I think I can handle it quite well, it doesn't feel to big or topheavy or anything like that, feel quite comfortable on it. But then again it is the only bike i've ever ridden.
Now, I really like the v-strom DL650 and from what I heard it is a good allround bike, will mostly commute to school with it, but also go camping and a little bit of touring when I get the chance
. Am I to small for a v-strom? Will it be hard to handle compared to a F800R?
As I'm not allowed to go test bikes untill I get my license, and I need a bike to get a license I kind of have to buy my bike blind, so anything people could tell me about the v-strom will be greatly appreciated !
O, I might add I live in Sweden, so if the laws are confusing it's cause of that
I forgot to add that I have to legally restrict the bike to 25kW for 2 years.
