Hi all. Real name: Brandon. Like you couldn't tell from my user name. I'm very new to the bike scene, so new I haven't got my learners yet. I'm going for it on Thursday. Hopefully I'll get it. I've mainly signed up here so it's easier to view the forum and get information on what bikes I should look at as a beginner. I'm looking at, well pretty much everything that is learner legal, 250cc or greater. I like the look of the half fairing and naked bikes. Sports bikes are nice too, but as a learner I don't want to drop it and need to replace expensive parts. Advice on which stores to avoid and which ones are good would be nice to have, but with some searching I should be able to find what I need. Hope I can become an active member here after Thursday.
