Focusing on bicycling and motorcycling
This is partly why I traded my ST1100 for a VFR back in '99, when the VFR was "only" 450 ish pounds. As much as I like it, it isn't as fun to scoot around on as my '88 Hurricane - 400 ish pounds, and not as tippy feeling.
Spot on! That's why I ride a Moto Guzzi Breva 750.
I suspect another reason motorcycles are getting bigger is a change in people's expectations over the years in the United States. Decades ago, when most people probably had experience riding a bicycle as an adult, a motorcycle could have been perceived as a "bicycle with a motor." These days, when most adults have virtually no experience with a bicycle, a motorcycle is seen as a "car with only two wheels." Hence an attraction to an overperforming motorcycles overloaded with accessories.
