Hi everyone, long time reader, first time poster. I've decided to get my L's and have started looking at bikes that will be good and safe to learn on and reliable enough to keep for a few years. Budget is around $10k for bike and safety gear. It will mostly be for riding on the weekends and the occasional 10 minute trip to work. I spotted the new CBR250R with ABS at Peter Stevens, this seems to be "perfect" based on a brief discussion with the sales guy but after reading a few posts here I'm just not completely sure. Is ABS a good idea for a first timer? Would I be better off sticking with something cheap and cheerful (and basically disposable)?
