Hello, new rider from NSW

  1. Hi guys and gals.

    Got my license around march this year and my bike around the same time, Kawasaki GPX 250.

    As of right now, I am not riding due to having an accident on my bike and basically totaling the poor thing, in a bit of a upset mood as of late weighting my options on whether to fix my current bike or replace her with something bigger. Being around 6 Ft, and roughly 95 kgs, I believe the 250 is a little small..

    Heres a picture before I smashed her up:
  2. Howdy, bugger, nice little bike, good ones sell for 2500 - 3000, gotta weigh that up against the cost of repairs I guess.
  3. Yeah, I got mine for under 2,000 off an older bloke who took it off his son, apparently to get her fixed it would cost me around 2-2.5k.
  4. Better off putting that towards something new and sell the GPX for spares IMHO
  5. I was considering either a Hyosung GV650 or an XVS 650, I love the looks of the cruisers but have little experience with these certain things.
  6. welcome aboard mate, commiserations on the bike accident glad you are ok. vote 1 XVS 650
  7. Who changed the thread title from South Coast NSW to NSW?
  8. I was wondering that myself, but it doesn't matter :p
