Hi everyone Been doing a lot of research looking for my first bike, and this forum is probably the most comprehensive Australian forum I've found. Good community and heaps of activity, great to see. I started on a peewee 80, then to Dad's DT175, and now got my RE's (Qld) a few month's ago. Now moved to Brisbane and looking at actually buying a bike in the next couple months. Have a couple narrowed down but I plan on doing a lot more reading until after Christmas. Feel good about the Megelli's, and the VTR250 right now, and have a niggle for an old cbr250r/rr, but trying to keep the price well under $5k, hopefully sub $4k because I know I'll be upgrading eventually so I want something thrash worthy and cheap to look after, not a new bike I have to baby for a thousand k's, then be terrified of insurance if I drop it. Look forward to hearing from like-minded riders Peace out!
