Hey guys, I've been lurking this forum non-stop since I decided to go for my L's back in March. Since then I didn't really do much about getting a bike, but now my housemate's gone and got himself a VTR250 and I've got the itch again. I've slowly been acquiring my gear and starting to gather the funds for a bike.. I'm looking at a GPX250 or ZZR250 maybe. I don't want to spend too much on a first bike, but some of these I see listed are '88-'90s.. I'm wondering if it's worth spending a couple more grand to get something from this century? Anyway, big thanks to everyone who posts here.. I've been able to answer all of my dumb questions so far just by lurking (also makes me feel better than I'm not the only one to need the answer!). How did people find out this stuff before the interwebs? Anyway, hope to get out there soon and meet some of you guys.
