Hi guys and gal's my names Josh, I just hit 18 a few months ago and decided to get my bike L's. I've had no real previous experiences with bikes but as of, April this year I got an interest in bikes ... kinda came out of nowhere but I'm glad it did! I asked my mum about getting one and of course I got a big NO... Understandable though as her best friend as a teenager was (RIP) killed on a motorbike. I still however tried my hardest to convince her otherwise, and to my surprise in the end, I did! ha ha, I've now turned 18, done a beginner rider course and passed my Learner test, and am now ready to buy my first ever mode of transportation ever. A motorbike! This Forums already proved so helpful as yesterday I posted about different bikes and have gotten Great responses! was looking at 125-150's and from the info I've gotten am looking at 250's-->500's (11' cbr250r with ABS) and (suzi GS500f) (VTR250 is also an option) but any other other options would be lovely to hear. Can't wait to get on the road!
