Before you buy, read the article in the latest issue of Cycle World on "Middleweight Bikes". It tells the story of why ~ 650 sized bikes are the sweetspot for so many motorcyclists over the past 70 years!

I am all for having fun, but keep the wheelies on the back road straights when & where there is nobody around!

I pull it out and let it warm up while I suit up. Oh well, to each their own.

C-14 is sooo faaar over the top for your purposes. Just do a test ride on the NC if you fancy it. I agree on the ABS; luckily we get ABS on the V in Europe.
