I have a job, so I am going to be buying a 600cc bike, but I still really want my bike back, but I also want to be able to go out on weekends and ride with some people. I am not a show off, I don't care about how fast other people are going, if they can knee drag, or if they can race off at 150+, I will personally never take the bike over 70MPH and I will never go on the interstate haha
If you get a 600cc sportbike, you can't "just cruise" at 70. That is like barely in second gear I think. Just get a 250-500. There ia no shame in that. My friends GS500 was a blast learning on after i did MSF.
Like GoingToScotland said, 600cc sport bike will outperform 90% of cruisers so don't even compare the two.
You can quickly find yourself at speeds you may never think you want to go/thought you were going on a 600cc+ SS
