First big bike test - MCN wants your views

What do you look for in your first big bike? Is it a smooth engine or perhaps a low seat height? Maybe it just needs to be at the right price.

First big bike

My first big bike was a BMW 1100RS, not really practical for a new rider but I did enjoy the real grunt this bike had. When winter arrived I bought an old CBX550 to knock about on whilst there was salt on the roads, that's when I realised that you can really start to get confident quite quickly and ride in a more relaxed manner without worrying about the wieght, so by spring I traded in the heavy weight RS and bought a Honda Hornet. Perfect for my style of riding, still a novice rider after only 14 months in the saddle but getting more enjoyment every day. So start small, work your way up to the bigger bike later and keep within your own personal comfort zone.
