Hi! Yes, i am a Newbie.. to bikes AND this forum... have a million and one questions, so will try to keep it simple. Wanted a SR400 for years, learnt that 250s' here in Japan cost f/a so decided on a Clubman (Honda GB 250), but following limited advice in English (they seem to be a domestic bike) led me to this site where i learnt about Hondas' VTR... seems like the perfect bike in every way, looks cool, runs well, good for beginners, and new about 1/2 the price they are back home in aus. (sorry guys!)(smell conspiracy?) etc, etc.... yeah, i'm sold!!! Further research & found Hondas' HORNET... "KOMATA KOMATA" (now I've got worry)... far cry from a GB, looks o.k., but FLIES! O.K. O.K. I'll get to the point, has anyone out there had experience with both HORNET & VTR? what's the verdict? will i get sick of either too soon? yeah, anyway, any advice would be greatly appreciated... time for another sake. not driving/riding anywhere tonight!!!!
