hiya folks i guess im what you call a wannabe biker(29/m/melbourne). fell in love with the idea when my younger bro bought his first bike. but its always been in the back on my mind. prob is i dont have a clue about whats a good learner bike? riding and (easy)maintance wise? . whats a reasonable price? the other prob is and i bet many of you have faced this problem is the "ARE YOU CRAZY!" responce when ever i tell my wife or family. of course i have my own worries (especially when when they point out how seemingly unprotected riders are)but how would i ease theirs (and mine) into not worry so much? thanks a million guys already downloaded heaps of articles to read after Uni and look forward to learning heaps from yas.
