    Don't be seduced by cc's make sure it's what you want to move to and not because 'everyone else has one'

    Test ride what you think you want and what you think you may dismiss, you may be surprised.

    BTW you can has much fun if not more on less cc's - unless you plan on dragging up and down motorways of course, but that isn't what biking is all about.
    We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.

    If you've got an itch, you have to scratch it

    Agreed, as you know, I've scratched my itch quite a bit over the years just don't be pressured into getting something you don't actually want.

    Too right, incurable and don't want to be cured of my addiction!

    Same as others have said, bigger ccs doesn’t mean more fun. Having gone 600 to 1200, back to 1000, the most fun for me personally is definitely in the 600 Range. 675 all the way now!
