Hey Guys/Girls, Just a little intro before i seek some of your assitance.. my names Phill, just moved to Melbourne from Perth.. and after years of dreaming about getting my motorbike license i'm finally doing it. Looking at a few bikes but i dont know anyone personally who has a bike etc.. So i know you guys are probably sick and tired of these questions.. but i really have noone else to ask. I like both bikes but not to sure as the CBF250 doesnt get many mentions for yay or nay on these forums as the VTR does. Any help for a naive rider would be much aprpeciate even if its to direct me to a previous thread.. i just cant find any.. ride wise are they very similar? i.e. accelration and driveability..? Thanks for taking the time to read anyways.. and i look forward to going through the process and one day riding along side you guys/girls. Cheers Phill.
