I'll try to outline my issue concisely: I've just got my Ls (after doing the pre-learners twice!) and am looking now to finding a bike. My parents had previouly told me that they would give me the money, but have now withdrawn this offer. Since I'm 17 (18 in about 5 months), I'm finding it hard to get finance. How would you all act in this scenario to get on the roads as soon as possible? Edit: If anyone did get finance or any sort of loan from any kind of institution whilst under 18 with or without a cosignee/guranteer , I'd really appreciate the exact details of the place!
