    After countless hours of researching bikes to try and figure out what to get I picked up my first bike on the weekend. Got a 2nd hand 2002 Kawasaki ER500. She may not be the prettiest girl but she goes all right when you’re on top.

    I had narrowed it down to this, a Ninja 250R and a CB 400 as my first bike. The Ninja was way too small (I’m 190cm & 95kg) and the CB that was in my price range was 20 years old so the best deal for me seemed to be the ER500. Got it Saturday arvo and took her for a nice ride yesterday.



    Loving the new mode of transport and spewing I hadn’t gotten my licence and a bike earlier.

    Yeah Naked seamed like a good idea for my first bike. Might change with further bikes but for now it was probably the smart choice.

    You're not the first to say that!
    Welcome, and that's a tidy looking bike.
