I guess I'm lucky that most riders appreciate my CB300F. I was at Youtuber Snowcat's meetup in North Vancouver a few months ago on a rental CB300F (don't pick up my own CB300F for another few weeks), getting off right as a Superduke was parking behind me. I heard a group of guys say nice bike and I assumed they were talking about the Superduke. Then they came up to me and started talking to me, I was pleasantly surprised and made some new friends off the bat who were riding CBR 300R, 500R, 600RR, and 1000RRs themselves.
The only people who tell me I need a bigger bike are people who don't own one themselves. The only opinion I care about is my wife's who says I would probably look better on a bigger bike lol so at least I have that buy in should I choose to upgrade to a bigger bike. But the only bigger bike I like is the NC700X/NC750X and maybe the VStrom 650. I've never felt comfortable when I demoed bigger nakeds like the SV650, FZ07, XSR900, etc. I like my low displacement and/or adventure format.
