How much you carrying w you?

would using a back pack and a net be enough for space and storage?

No need to even look at a bike that wont offer the fundamentals of what you need. The 600s will offer a decent ride, lighter weight and substantial power, yes, over a sport cruiser. they aren't all that uncomfortable either. If you really want something more comfortable, upright position, Yamaha has the fz(? help me people if im wrong; fzr6?) and there are saddle bag options for it as well

I currently have a tankbag and a tailbag on my Ninja. Seems to be enough space for now.

Bike(s):
Caspian Blue 2005 Triumph Sprint ST 1050









Waerloga, I highly recommend the Triumph Sprint ST 1050 as a daily commuter Sport Tourer. I've never met anyone in life or on the net who wasn't happy as with their Sprint. If you're looking for something more affordable than a new Sprint, check out the old Sprint 955s, which have their own cult fanbase.

The ST is comparable to the Ducati ST4, Honda VFR800, BMW R1150RS, and the Aprilia RST1000 Futura. In my opinion, and in most reviewer opinions, it is the best of the bunch.

FZ6 and yep, bags etc. Undertail exhaust, so no worries about burning bags etc. You easily do a tail bag, Tank bag and a backpack for when you need to carry a nice amount... and prolly only run a couple grand more for a used one than your current.

Bike(s):
06 SV650









I wanted the fz6 when I was looking for my first bike, but decide to get SV650 because it has a little bit more friendly of a powerband and you won't scare yourself senseless on it. I bought my 06 SV650 new a year ago and I am about to hit the 16k mark on it and I love it. Eventually I will upgrade to something like a FJR, Bandit, or a Triumph, but it does great for now and it gets better gas mileage than the other options. When I'm nice to it, I get about 52-55 mpg, but when I'M mean to it I still get about 45mpg and I could ride it almost all day long.

The best advice of all is to get what you want and what you like, but make sure it's comfortable to ride for longer durations first.
