Hi guys, well I have a new job, like woot! anyhow, i'm on my second week, im casual(perm i think? dont ask me! - i go through 'skilled') and do 36 hours a week(3 days), anyhow. i take(will be taking) about $700 home a week. minus last week, only worked 2 days. I know there's a few people in finance (infact, i was speaking to someone who is in it, a while ago. but the username escapes me - on this forum) how long(weeks/months) is it generally (i _should_ wait) before apply for a personal loan, i know it all differs from place to place). I hear "3 months" i also hear "x amount of payslips" - ie; 5. I will save $1,000 before applying for a loan(gimme a few weeks) but yeah, anyhow. im after a max of $6,000 loan. I am with commonwealth, so i would like to stay with them, ya'll feel free to put your input! any do's and dont's (excluding "don't get a loan" of course.. haha!) I am thinking about buying a mates CBR250RR $4k (keeping in mind, I am off my restrictions in august, I am 6'3 and weigh 85kg. and the loan will be a minimum of 2 years.) I suppose; I could always buy a more powerful bike and not ride it until im off my restrictions, in august. But I can't wait that long ha.
