I'm just about to get my first bike on my RE licence and what I've been told is get a less then favourable bike, then when I get onto my R licence after a year of riding upgrade to my dream bike. Another option I thought was to get something like this an RGV? it sounds amazing and someone I know is selling one for a decent price. So would you think its a good idea? if I got something like this I could keep it for a few years then upgrade. On the other hand, its one of the fastest bikes I could buy for my licence class, do you think it could be too much? Hows reliability on these models as well, the one I'm looking at is a 96 model, with under 1600KMs on it, had an engine rebuild at 13000, sounds good. I know its ment to be a Leaning over sports build or what ever, so I guess its not going to be the most comfortable thing? I'm going to be using the bike as a daily commute.
