  1. Another Noobie joining the world of two wheels :)

    Gippsland based, planning on one of either:

    Hyosung 250 Aquila, Honda Vt250c, Kawasaki VN250 Eliminator.

    At the moment the Hyosung might be winning. These forums have been good to read for advice and opinions.

  2. Welcome to Netrider, CS :grin:

    Which bit of Gippy are you from?
  3. Welcome to Netrider :). Plenty of Netriders in Gippsland....
  4. In Morwell Fuzz :)

  6. CS's New Bike

  7. Hey,

    I'm from Moe and am looking at the same bikes you listed. What made you settle for the Hyosung? Did you test ride any of them before you settled on the Aquilla?

    Where'd you find the bike by the way??
  8. Sorry for the late reply distorted, my computer took a hiatus and it's been a while since I got online properly.

    I didn't test ride them, I sat on each of them and figured out which one I felt the best on.

    The Vt250 spread me out a bit too much, the suzuki intruder too squashy.

    The three bikes I sat on that I really liked posture wise were the GV650, GV250, and the honda vtr250.

    In the end I liked the look of the gv250 the best, and the gv650 was a little too much to spend on a first bike.

    I've been riding for about 2 months now, and I'm glad I made the decision I did.
