Ez . Kawasaki H2R with Akrapovic exhaust .Hey guys! I'm interested to know if money (and availability) was not a factor, what would be your next bike after the 400? I know that a significant percentage of people here probably already have "bigger" bikes either before the 400, or since they owned a 400 (or have gone back and forth between smaller and bigger bikes), so the answers are probably going to vary alot.
The reason I ask is, in my circle (which is quite small, and has mostly people on smaller bikes or have not been riding for a long time), it seems to bring up some heated discussion when you say "I would love my next bike to be a Z H2 or a Ninja ZX10R!". It seems to bring up some negative reactions when you want to jump from your first bike thats a small CC bike to "a big boy bike".
I would love to get some thoughts on this topic from a larger group with far more variance in experience. If you have already been through this I would love to hear what your progression was through different sized bikes or different category bikes!
