hi guys, i'm new to riding- getting my l's in about a month. have been looking at past threads and it seems zzr's, gpx's and cbr's are popular first bikes, but i'm looking for something that is air cooled (simpler) and naked (less damage if dropped) for about $3000. it does not need to set the world on fire (will ride to uni mainly in 50-60 zones with a short burst at 100) as i'm only learning, but needs to be reliable. cb250's are everywhere and it seems they area popular dependable bike. can anyone who owns/ has owned one provide some feedback on issues with the bike, how easy to ride, revs at 100, ease of maintenance or anything else? i've also noticed some others such as suzuki gn250 and kwaka z250 but do not know much about them. any advice would be fantastic!! thanks in advance!!
