Question Downsizing

I have been researching and been around bikes a good bit of my life and it seems that a lot of people have been downsizing their bikes from the 1000cc to 750's or 600's. When I was in England a lot of them do it for insurance reasons, I mean as to how expensive everything is in England is totally ridiculous. What is the reason for most of you here state side.

I feel most in North America are going to larger machines. STILL some are downsizing as they possibly liked the size of bike they had before only a more modern version is attractive, easier on fuel to even less costly in tyres, to the cut in insurance for all ads up.

AT my age it makes no difference as I only have so many more yrs to possibly ride so I might just as well have what I want & in my case I have a 600 & a Honda 929 with no hesitation to pick up a third bike.
