  1. Hello all,

    Long time reader, first time poster here (and thought i better make my first post in the right section!)

    Have long been wanting to dive into the world of bikes but haven't built up the courage until now. Still haven't purchased my first bike, but hope to change that sometime over the next few weeks / months or however long its going to take to find the right example.

    At this stage it looks like i'll be going for a CBR250RR, I know its typical, but please dont discriminate :wink:


  2. Welcome to the forum - good choice I ride a 250R and love her she is a great learner bike!
  3. Welcome to Netrider :).
  4. Shame LAMS isn't comin in til July. This will open up a whole new world of learner bikes for new Vic riders. I have to say that I was partial to the old 2-strokes myself. If the boss would let me have 2 bikes, I would get me a RGV250. Aint nuthin wrong with the CBR tho, Honda's are known for their reliability if looked after. Buy well and give em hell. :twisted:
  5. hello xscape you will get a laugh here im sure
