Hey guys! I've been parusing the forum for the past 3 weeks now and still have no idea what bike to get. I'll mostly be commuting, (Well, that's basically around town, which really isn't more than 10Km in both directions) and something to putt around on during the weekend, that's still a lot of fun. I do like the Ninja (Hey! ANOTHER one) but the sporty look is appealing to me. I'm a short arse (168cm) and heavy (100kg) But for something that I'll use around town, would a 250 suffice? Maybe the very OCCASIONAL highway jaunt to Melbourne, Bendigo, etc. (Like, two or three times a year, if that) Any help is appreciated. OH! A budget of around 5-7k. I have my learners now, and looking somewhere to practice that ISN'T Melbourne, as I don't exactly feel comfortable travelling 2 1/2 hours to St Kilda to practice then ride home again :nopity: And having absolutely zero experience on the road doesn't help.
