Hi guys new to the forum, been wanting to get a bike since i was around 17, im 19 (20 soon). rode dirt bikes for a few years when i was 7-10. im pretty keen on getting a gs500f, or possibly a zzr250. is there any other bikes that have decent power and are a good riding bike that is learner legal? id prefer a full fairing bike (not for practicallity, rather looks ) how much im i looking at for insurance, i keep getting around the $1500 for full comp :? ... if it is going to cost me this much im going to get it in my old man's name (30+ years riding experience) and myself as a listed driver. so my question is, can i get it cheaper? i plan on getting the following gear (don't plan on sticking to a budget, if i spend lots of money, so be it): -leather jacket -leather pants -draggin pants -summer and winter gloves -already got a good helmet from go-karting, but may get another (for a more visable colour) also are boots a must? like above the ankle? thanks guys, appreciate any help that can be given.
