Welcome from another new member. It's really a shame that smaller bikes are labeled as novice or beginner motorcycles. But it seems commonplace to label almost anything and everything these days. Lighter, more nimble and fuel efficient bikes can just as easily be described as sensible, enjoyable, or even elder-level machines.
At 73 I just traded my venerable 1993 BMW K75S for a 2018 G310R because I no longer felt comfortable on the tall, heavy and stubby handle bar K75. It took all of five minutes aboard the 310 to come to the conclusion that it's a great - well built, nimble, light, maneuverable, fuel efficient and fun - machine and I look forward to finding any reason to climb aboard and go somewhere - or nowhere for that matter.
My only regret is that I didn't make the change sooner than I did. Now I have to catch up with myself!
