Hey all, I just joined the site. I'm going for my bike L's later this month. I've always wanted a bike. Funnily enough my mums the one who got me keen she rode a Honda Shadow for 10 yrs, while the old man tells me its too dangerous lol. I've been looking into a good bike for learners and have narrowed down my search (with a fair bit of help from threads from you folks) to a GS500 or CB400. I watch my pennys pretty closely so I'm after a relatively cheap naked bike (around 4K tops). I can't seem to find a moderately priced model mentioned less than 10yr old for less than 6K. Am I looking in the wrong places? Also say you do buy a spotless 2008 model cb400 or gs500 for 6K and cause no damage, what can you hope to get back for it in 2 or so years? Cheers all.
