Here I am, a poor foolish lad riding a scooter. A goal in life is to get a proper bike to enjoy. I have the licence, but obviously when I get a bike Iâ€™m going to definitely be a learner. In reality I will have an unrestricted licence by the time I get a bike â€“ itâ€™ll be a little while yet, but I like to dream! So, should I get a LAMS bike coz theyâ€™re learner bikes, but also inflated in price becauseâ€¦. theyâ€™re learner bikes? A GS500 comes to mind, but Iâ€™m thinking it is a LAMS bike for a reason, so probably will get boring. Or are there good bikes out there that donâ€™t happen to fit the LAMS scheme, but are still good to learn on? Iâ€™m not going to be looking for a full-on sports bike, but a bike for commuting, heading into the hills a bit, and that can do an occasional longer highway ride. So whatâ€™s the perfect bike for a learner with a full licence, a bike that can be kept a while without forever feeling like a learner bike? Thoughts?
