First bike I owned was a Honda Z50. I was about 7 and I loved that little bike to death. That was over 30 years ago and now have finally got my self a bike again. A Honda CBF 250. My journey to getting a bike again began with the learners course. Such a mix of excitement, fear and exhilaration. About a week after that sat the road rules test. I had my L's ! (But no bike). I had planned to hire bikes to get up my road skills but realized this was not practical and expensive. But the time I had hired a bike or two I could have near bought a little CBR 125. So the bike hunt was on. I was all over eBay gumtree and bike sales. I started looking at cheap 125 but after feeling quite cramped on one at the rider training thought I needed something a little bigger and with more power. A week later saw the CBF 250 and thought that will do me. So happy to have a bike again and looking forward to some great rides and meeting some great people. Big Hi from BradG Newcastle.
