i would happy rider to work every day on a cbr 900 or a zzr 900 street fight so i would have a nice up right riding posion and the speed and power of a sports bike.

would not go near a 1200gs  as the big total weight of the bike is huge and the seat hight is huge to.  as i fine the lowerd one fits ok.

Commuting

I do commute to work daily and can pick and chose what bike I ride depending on the mood I'm in/ weather etc. My commute is only around 5 miles each way along built up A roads so that influences what I ride aswell. I tend to use a CBR600F more often than not becuase its good on fuel, has reasonable poke and is reasonably narrow for filtering. Occassionally I'll use the blade if I fancy a bit more urgency and sometimes the supermoto (Husqvarna SM610) gets taken. I'd use the moto more regularly however the bars are slightly wide and at the same height as car mirrors so filtering can be more of an issue than with the CBR/ Blade. I did used to use a Tuono but if you don't use it regularly/ keep the battery on a charger it can leave you stranded when you try to start it and again wide bars and filtering issues.

what a choice!

I commute on my Triumph Tiger 955i, its brilliant - bars and mirrors e.t.c. are higher than car wing mirrors so filtering is fine. My commute is a boring one, so I wouldn't be choosing a sports bike. For sheer noticeability and coolness - I'd pick the Millyard Viper as my commuter. Plus I'm a big guy, so I wouldn't look very out of place on it!

Superduke

I'm thinking of buying a KTM superduke for the commute, only concern is the wide bars which i think could make filtering difficult. Been using a 2001 TLR which is hard work and not practical.

Suzuki V-Strom 650

Moving from Yamaha XT 600 , you would think I was mental. But there is method in the madness...

I don't know for sure, but I was thinking of commuting mine with a BMW S1000RR. When I was young, my dream job was to work at a BMW agency. I know there are a little difficult to rule, but I'm too addicted to them.
