Hi all, I am in the process of buying my first bike. Iâ€™ll be mainly using it to go to work (40kms return/day) and also for longer trips around Sydney (200kms) the week-ends when the weather is nice. A rough estimate would be 10,000 km/year. I am a big fan of â€˜dual/supermotardâ€™ bikes. I like their style and the fact you can use it occasionally on â€œdirt roadsâ€ (I am not planning to any sort of crazy stuff in the bush with it though!). I was looking at 250cc and 400cc bikes at their sizes and power seem a good match. I would also like the possibility to carry a pillion when needed. My budget is around $5k-6k. What bike would you recommend? Something like the Aprilia Pegaso or Honda XR400M would be great. Also, do you know where I could find a good 2nd hand dealer near Sydney? Thanks for your help!
