Hm.... I didn't realize we were discussing beginner bikes. again. Look, there are a million posts out there about what to get as a beginner. But the truth is the answer is pretty obvious. Nobody wants to hear it but this is how it is. Buy something like a relatively new 300cc bike from craigslist. A Ninja 300, a Rebel 250, whatever. Ride it for a year and sell it for whatever you bought it for. If you are fat then maybe think about one of the Honda 500s or a used Suzuki...
Because the association between money and intelligence is highly overrated.
I'd go with the Hypermotard, that thing is just made for commuting in cities - narrow, good suspension travel, etc.
Not for the headlight I was using which was super shallow.
Why not?
I gave up on my retrofit - Just wasn't the clearance without doing a lot more work and I got kind of sick of trying to cram everything in there. Shame too, I did a ton including modding the projector, painting the shields, fixing the cutoff, etc...
Forever and they are tanks. But I still wish there was shifter padding - been thinking about taking them to a cobbler to have a flap sewn on.

Nice looking, and I ride in my Tricker Stows quite a bit - admittedly shifter padding would be nice.But I don't really pretend that they are real motorcycle gear.
I am not sure you can have that license plate unless you are pushing 1500hp.
