I have been looking into the ctx700n as an affordable commuter motorcycle. I go 35 miles one way to work a day. I really prefer not to go to a bigger bike, I have previously owned a 250 Suzuki for a few years. 90%+ of the time I can see this being a one person adventure but there would be times I would like to take the lady out for a cruise around the area. Im 240. Im an overweight chef. I know this bikes weight limit is around the 350 mark. With a passenger that would clearly put me over the mark. If I cant ride with her at times should I take a pass on this bike or do we think we can handle this? Id prefer not to have to purchase new shocks and tires off the bat either.
