Been there, and had one
This was mine...................
I had a 650gs as my first 'big bike'. Pretty much ideal for a newbie in my opinion. Amazing punch from the Rotax single.I had a BMW F650GS as my first bike. Owned it 3 months and it went back to the dealer 5 times for warranty work, only got to ride it for about 3 weeks in total. The last time I took it in I handed the keys back and had my money back.
Then brought a CBR1000F, fantastic bike and very comfortable but sold it after a couple of years due to not using it (Which I now regret) but kids were little and it wasn't going to be used anytime soon.
Then the kids got older so I went looking for another CBR1000F but discovered the BBird, which I'm never going to sell. If I fancy a change in the future it will be in addition to the bird, not a replacement.
Make sure to get a Villiers engine. That is an AMC as far as I can remember. the chain case always leaked as the rubber seal was not a "thing", you bought it from a coil and jointing it was impossible.Very nice squag1, if I didn’t have to sell a kidney I’d love a small vintage British bike.
