however, the f800 is prone to " piston slap " apparently, so do the research

An definite alternative to the beemer is the Honda CBF600S. So do some research., the CBF600 engine has a couple of guises and is bombproof if serviced as it should be.

as it will be your first big bike, buy something that will see you through the next 2 / 3 yrs.
Thanks Duke. 2-3 years is exactly what I was planning

Will research the Honda today but can it be used for the test?
