Default Getting my first bike next spring, any advice and tips?

Hey all, I'm getting my first bike and need help on deciding which one best suits me. I commute to college and drive to my job, in my'02 ford focus each day. I'm planning on getting a bike and have found a bunch that I think would be nice starter bikes.The main things what I'm looking for in a bike are:1. it has to be light2. stylish3. comfortable over long distances on park-ways and hi-ways4. easy to handle5. easy to maintain6. from $2,000 to $7,000These are the bikes I have been looking at. They are very diverse from each other in many ways but seem like great bikes to get started out with.1. Yamaha Tw2002. Yamaha FZ63. Suzuki DR650E4. Suzuki SV6505. Honda Nighthawk6. Buell Blast7. Kawasaki Verseys 6508. Kawasaki KLR650I'm leaning towards Kawasaki's bikes more than the others. They're just so bad ass.Thanks for reading, please comment.

My preference would be Honda first and then Yamaha. The rest would be up to you but I have owned both of these maker's bikes and gotten good service from them. A friend of mine had a Kawasaki and had problems from the tranny forever. Gears just started leaving the gear box and he wound up with first and third I think before he sold it. From what I have read here, the Buell is a boat anchor at best? My brother-in-law had a Suzuki and always was working on it in stead of riding. ------
