  1. Hi all,
    Long time scooter rider newbie motorcycle rider. Actually I just got my motorbike licence the other day, yeah! no more 50cc scooters for me. All I need to do now is get a bike.

  2. Nice One! ;)

    So what kinda bike you gonna get?
  3. Welcome Sky, good to see more scooter riders upgrading to a safer machine
  4. Hi there Sky! :)

    My message isn't too short now, is it? :cool:
  5. Most likely some thing Japanese and naked. Mmmm..... Japanese..... naked.... *drools*. There are a couple of kawasaki's that seem to be at the right price. I'll prolly go hunting this weekend.

  6. yes I must admit I rather fancy naked Japanese myself ;)....I'm soon to be looking at Z750's I think
  7. that's one of the three on my short list.

    And WELCOME SKY!!!!!!
  8. That was what I was thinking. Only a fool will tell you it is safe to be travelling at 60km/h on a 70km/h road. I just got tired of cars treating me like as if I'm on a push bike. And other bike rider wonder why many scooter rider don't wave back, it not that we're up ourselves, it just that we're trying very hard not to get killed and on a 50cc that no easy feat.

    Well that enough ranting,
  9. Dont expect much more respect from cagers when you get a proper bike.

  15. Well we all have our vices. ;) :p :grin:

    I prefer my Japanese with clothes on (Yammy FZR :D) and my Brit's naked (Trumpy Speed Triple).
  16. Hi Doddles, good to see you here finally!
  17. I've always felt the Japanese are better naked. All my bikes have fitted that description.
