I've been riding my '12 250R since July 2012. It's my daily commuter and I do like it a lot. Until recently I only commuted 8 miles to work and back, but for the last 6 months my driving has jumped up to ~50 miles a day. This does include some 12 miles in the CoSal canyons, so I'm not complaining at all.
Long story short, I've been debating for some time on whether to upgrade, and more precisely on what should my next bike be. Mainly due to the fact that the 250R is kinda lightweight on the freeway, as it's absolutely great in all other circumstances.
There've been many bikes I've considered at one point or another, but I can't seem to make up my mind. My top contender would have to be the BMW F800GT, the worry there is that it might be a bit too serious/boring. I've also looked at the FZ6R and FJ-09, as well as the new Versys DL, which lately hasn't been getting very good press.
Anyway, I was wondering if any of you would have an opinion on the subject. May be upgraded and have a particular feeling about it you would like to share? I'm looking for something with a bit more power and weight, but still nimble in the twisties. Preferably not naked. Thanks in advance
