G'day friends.

Looking to get my second bike. Presently on a 250cc without a lot of horses. Debating something like an R3/Ninja 650. But also low key considering a S1kRR/CBR1000RR.
Are the later basically asking for trouble?

Thanks

What style of riding do you do? Ex:touring, adventure riding, racing around with friends etc., that would be the deciding factor. I always recommend sport touring or adventure touring because of the versatility of the bikes.

So mostly around town and twisties really. Maybe a few trips but not more than a couple hours!

Started on a 250 on a 650 now and don’t crave more cc’s. Maybe consider a zx6r if you want a slight upgrade to the 650.

Most people on a 1000 cc sport bike are asking for trouble. For what you want to do you can get middleweight bikes with 70-100 HP that will still be fun.

Does anyone know how to go about providing a writing sample to a potential new employer while going through the application process, without letting on to my current team that I am applying for a new job? I understand I would need permission to use a redacted memorandum or document I’ve written during my time a PwC, but to ask for permission to use one of my writings as a sample would basically admit that I’m applying to another job. What is the appropriate thing to do in this situation ?
