Been wanting my Learner's for a while and I finally got it. I have some previous motorbiking experience on my friend's bikes and a little bit off-road when I was younger but nothing noteworthy. Just turned 18 and want something to commute to uni with 3/4 days a week, around a 50km round trip each day. Some things I'd like the bike to have are, 1. To be around $3.5k 2. To be powerful and comfortable enough for my weight/height. 100kg/189cm 3. Would prefer a naked bike, but I'm flexible. Some of the bikes I've looked at are the, GS500E, VTR250, SV650 and the other standard 250s such as the CBR and Ninja. Any suggestions would be welcome. Cheers.
