Another newbie bike

Discussion in 'Showcase' started by AngryAnt, Jan 29, 2011.

  1. First bike - '98 Yamaha FZX250 Zeal. Cost 2.5K and I love it already. Has a few scrapes and bumps - all the better in case I drop it myself.


  2. Great way to start riding mate..and for 2.5k ??? What a find !
    Enjoy !
  3. Nice one anto - love those twin cans!
  4. Actually $2650 but that included the roadworthy AND a service so not bad. It has done 43K though.
  5. Don't worry, it only needs to get you through to your full license.
    Even if it's dead by then, you would have lost nothing more than the depreciation of a new bike.
  6. True Raven, so I can afford to flog it? The clutch is taking a bit of a beating at the moment :) have to keep working on those nice smooth gear changes.
  7. Congrats! It's a handsome little naked, I wanted to try one myself when I got my Ls, but couldn't find any around at the time.
  8. Sexy, jealous. :)
  9. That's really really nice. I would've loved to start with something like that if I had better bargain-hunting skills.
