I decided to learn how to ride after seeing my first Monster at a bike rally. I totally fell in love. I took the class, got an old Suzuki to learn on and I'm starting to feel pretty confident and see the light at the end of the tunnel. My problem is, I need some way to decide which one. I've been learning on a 500 and it's starting to feel kinda sluggish. But, my husband let me try his Z1000 and it is waaaay too twitchy for me. We went to a demo day at our local Ducati dealership and I got to try the 620. It was so great! But, I wasn't able to try anything else (they were very busy). So, I'm not sure what to do. I don't really know enough about the difference in performance/handling in the different year/models. I don't mind a used bike instead of a brand new one, but what are the drawbacks? Will a 620 be enough of a jump for me? I loved everything about it, but in a few months am I going to with I'd have gotten something else? Are there things I should know about the older ones and look out for compared to the newer ones? I've seen some people ask questions about how to pick a bike, and I do realize it's mostly about what I prefer and can handle. I'm just hoping to soak up some of your expertise before I make a uninformed decision! As you can tell, I'm pretty new at this so ANY advise would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
