what bike for me

any advice folkes.Ive been riding a few years and an a 6.1 woman. my first bike was a fzs 600 which i loved, but after touring Europe I decide I needed something a little bigger (with a bit more grunt) Bought the Fzs1000 which Is excellent in all things except I find it a little heavy and not very sexy.  I now also have an R1 which Is gorgeous and I love the lightness of it too.  I would really prefer something more upright like the Fazer, but with sexy looks and lightness of the R1. I know Nick Saunders tours the world on the R1- but hes a nutter...LOL (and a short arse)  A Light?Sexy tourer- do they exist ( I also like to do track days) cheers

Not sure what you are after...

The usual answer to "a light sexy tourer" is a Honda VFR800/VFR750 but I'm not sure that's going to be light enough or fast enough for you.
Other Tourers that are not particularly light but faster are BMW K1300s, Busa, Kawasaki ZZR and Honda VFR1200 etc...
I guess that just leaves the weird and the wonderful(?) like Ducati's Multistrada (ugly?) or the BMW R1200S (Bit slow and heavy?)  or the F800ST (slower but characterful). You might want to look at KTM or Aprilla twins too (but I haven't heard good things about reliability so possibly not good for touring).
Oops forgot the Triumph ST ...
