Hi all, I have just decided to get back into riding angain (used to ride alot when younger but havn't for afew years and untill not have never held a bike licence for the road) I have a gold licence for cars and am 24 years old, how long do i need to hold a licence for before I can legally ride an unrestricted bike? Also I want to get either an R1 or cbr1000rr, I have not ridden for years so I am under no illusions that I am a great rider on the road, what should I get as a first bike? (was thinking CBR250r, don't want too small a bike, physically, as I am pretty big at almost 100kg) and how long should I wait before getting the R1 etc? I know It comes down to experiance etc (but i am hoping it comes back to me quickly). Thank you in advance. richard.
