As my VROD looks likely to be written off I am looking for something to replace it, I am planning to buy a brand new street Bob, so the other bike will need to fit these criteria

1. Be able to handle a British winter.
2. Not to tall I am quite short.
3. A good work bike
4. A good touring, fun bike
5. Be 750cc or over.
6. Reliable

What I am looking at the moment

Honda

CB900F Hornet (cheap and cheerful-slow and dull)
CB1000R

Kawsaki

Z1000
Z750 (apparently very bad brakes and dodgy build quality)

Yamaha

FZ1000

They are not going to be new, but I should have a good amount of money to spend.

Comments and suggestions welcome.

So, are you looking to buy another bike in addition to the Street Bob?

I am currently lusting over a 96 Triumph Trophy 900, as a nice touring bike to ride.
About the same power as my older XS1100 Yamaha, 70 pounds lighter, with better handling, and a better fairing.

I always own a Harley Davidson and something else, I usually use the Harley Davidson for club stuff and for the good weather riding, and always have a back up do it all bike.

I love Triumphs the problem is they are quite tall and big, I am quite short legged, but have had a speed four and a speed triple in the past.
