Best bike for country roads

Hi guys,


I am 21 years old and have just passed my A unrestricted licence and am now looking for a new bike. I am currently riding a honda nc700x but would like a more powerful bike. I am looking for a bike which is great for country roads.

Any help would be appreciated
James

Best Bike

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm, that's a difficult question to answer specifically, everyone is different and therefore different bikes suit different people, best thing you could do is go to your local dealers and test ride various bikes to find out what feels right for you!

Really

really twisty country roads with poor surfaces? Supermoto.


"Streetfighter" type bikes are also good if there's a slightly better surface and not seriously majorly twisty like a triumph street triple.

A bit off topic

While we are on this topic what's the difference between a supersport bike and a sport tourer (e.g. A honda vfr1200fd)

bike differences

A supersports bike will be closer to race machinery with a more acute riding position, poor pillion provision and an emphasis on performance with big, sticky tyres, huge forks and race-spec brakes. A sport tourer is more real world, can go plenty fast enough for open roads and take on a commute or a Euro tour.....

A Triumph Tiger or better still the xc

Large spoked wheels for large pot holes.

Street Triple

is really light and easy to throw around. Very forgiving if you make a mistake or find a big muddy or gravelly stretch of road you'd rather avoid.
