Hey guys, just wondering what would you recommend between BMW F800R, Ducati 696/796, and Triumph Street Triple for a beginner. I know they are quite a lot of bike for a newbie, but I have no trouble at all with MSF course. Might as well get myself something that I would keep for years, instead of getting a cheap starter bike that I probably get tired in a few weeks.

Personally, I am leaning toward the BMW F800R, the length of warranty and ease of maintenance is quite much better than Ducati and Triumph. I am planning to test drive all of them next week, but figured I would get some opinions on you guys.
