Enlighten me, Please!!!
Hi! I have a 1993 Yamaha Seca 600 (w/ jet kit) and 3500 miles experience with it (2.5 seasons). I would like to upgrade this summer. My question is why dealers refuse to let you test drive bikes (I have my motorcycle endorsement and have successfully completed the MSF basic course twice). I am unsure whether I want a sport touring bike (VFR) or super sport, and the dealers I have spoken with (4) basically want to sell me a $10k bike without letting me drive the damn thing!!! How does one determine the right style and bike? I don't know many sportbike riders, so that is probably not going to solve the problem in the short term. Last of all, would moving from a 600cc with about 49 hp to the Honda RC 51 with 125 hp be suicidal? I love the sound of a v-twin, but I am nervous about having the front end leave the ground every time I open the throttle. Thanks for any input you may have.
