Saw this forum on Twitter today.

Call it a midlife crisis or maybe I just want a bit of fun again as now hit 50 I think I need a treat.

Had a bike (motorbike) most of my adult life until around 8 years ago.

Used to love it and thinking maybe it is time to get back in the saddle again.

In the past I have had a Honda VFR750

a BMW K75

... and my last bike was a Yamaha FJR 1300cc (wikipedia link)

Liked all of them the Yamaha FJR 1300 was amazing, comfort, very nippy, reasonable MPG looks, probably my favorite bike I had but loved each while owned them.

What are user bike recommendations for a returning middle aged biker to the friendly biker community!

Probably will buy second hand may only come out at weekend or holidays and say a budget of £5000?

How about a Kawasaki Z1000SX?

Around £9,300 without ABS and £9,700 with ABS but you might pick one up second hand for around £5,000 if not this year maybe next year.

I have always loved Kawasaki motorbikes! Zrrroooom... lol
