Hi all, I'm new to the site like many others here. I think it must be that time of year that every thinks to themselves "Yeah! I'm gonna go get my bike license!". I've been reading a lot of the posts throughout the forum and have been very impressed with the amount of knowledge and experience shared amongst the members. Especially for new riders. I have a question that I haven't been able to find an easy answer to, so I figured it was high-time to make my first post What bike should I get? (Sounds silly right? Keep reading ) I'm going to be getting my bike license in the next few months, and have obviously been looking around at bikes, prices and which would suit me best. My "biggest" problem is that i'm around 6' 8" and around 150kg (my scales won't give me an accurate reading ). I'm worried that with my height and weight i'm going to start into a corner, get overbalanced and find myself with a face full of gravel. I don't think I would have a lot of confidence in most 250's as they are just too small in size. Obviously i'm not going to be able to go out and get a CBR250RR as it will probably get lost up my arse somewhere. If money wasn't a question i'd go out and get a Yamaha XVS650 (learner legal in NSW), but unfortunately it is. Anyone got any suggestions? I've been looking out for some bigger older bikes that are learner legal (e.g. CB400, XJ650, GS500 etc...) from this list http://www.rta.nsw.gov.au/licensing/tests/motorcycleridertrainingscheme/motorcyclesnoviceriders.html But it's pretty rare to find anything that's in good condition, let alone running at all Any "bigger" riders out there that can share their experience/advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance, and sorry for the huge post!
