I'd take a look at South Queensferry, Edinburgh is only 10-15 minutes by train (the station is just behind the Forth bridge).
last time i was there by motorcycle i was based in Dunblane. it's about 70 km north-west of E. it was less expensive compared to E. and the city was easily reachable by the M9, plus you can reach other locations like stirling, bannockburn, trossachs, loch lomond, linlithgow, callander, the fife...
