125cc to 600cc. Death wish?


I've been riding my existing bike for over 6 years and have done nearly 30k miles. I wanted to get a larger bike. I've passed my A2 test and now want to get something larger. Have looked and sat on a NC700s DCT but haven't ridden (due to the restriction). Is it a wise idea to jump?
Thanks in advance :smile

Click on browse, open my pictures select picture and post a single picture twice (MCN site quirk) you will need to post at least two pictures. 

Edit at 03:37a.m. there is no hidden message in the picture content.

Enjoy the new bike and ride safe.
