I have done both, knee dragging and sport touring and they go to different moods.
Sport riding is fun and challenging.
Sport touring allowed me to enjoy the open air sun on my face and a sprited run through beautiful scenery.
Bikes I owned
AMF Sportster 1000 (and I never had an issue with it)
zx10 that was tuned by muzzy.
Concourse.. stock with a seat and a pipe.
I also rode a FXRS-SP at work , and while It could do impressive things once I learned to ride it, it would not be my choice for any type of all day riding.
I agree with the Rebel as a good first bike.
Just recenty rode a friends R1...WOW small fast and very capable, I am glad I dont sport ride anymore.....
