Great choice, I also looked at the Tracer and just like you got a full spec V gt for less than the Tracer GT.
It's a great little bike, more versatile than people give her credit for.
I use mine for exactly the same as you, and I can say that apart from the chain, I haven't had any issues with excessive wear after riding through the entire winter now.
A bugger to clean in parts though!
Enjoy and let's have some pictures when she arrives!
