I am based in Queensland and am looking to go for my licence shortly. Just doing a few lessons and will complete the QRide course soon. As I have had my car licence for more than 3 years I can go straight to any size bike (from my understanding of the laws up here). What do you guys think of buying a 650cc or so for my first bike. I am a bit worried about the increased power and my lack of ability. I am looking at a Honda or BMW tourer, not a racing bike. I thought that this would save me losing about $1 or $2k on my first learner bike, as it seems that the market is flooded with 250cc Hondas and the resale seems to be pretty poor. Let me know what you think?
