Another one of those first bike thread

  1. So I've decided that my first bike will be a cruiser. Hopefully will have my L permit in 2 weeks time.

    I have my eyes set on a few 250cc cruisers already: Kawasaki VN250, Suzuki VL250 and Honda VT250C.

    From the what I've been reading so far, am I right to assume that the general consensus here leans towards the VN250?

    If so, Ray Quincey is listing a couple of Eliminators for under the $3000 mark. This one in particular looks good. And they can deliver the bike to my door, which is a big help since I don't really know anyone who rides bike to help me get the bike home. A bit worried though, since I've read quite a few of bad reviews on Ray Quincey (the dealership).

    So what are your thoughts on this?
