Hi all, Just joined up as I'm working towards a first bike. Have been riding scooter with 50cc's of fire breathing fury for the past 6 month to get to and from work. Picked it up for a few hundred bucks from a friend as a cheap way to get to work and have decided I'll never go back to public transport for the commute. While the scooter is cheap and easy, and costs less than the train even including the private park in the city, the lack of power leaves me few options if I ever needed to get out of trouble. I'm currently riding it on a car license but have got a qride booked to get open RE and next step is a bike. I like the lightness of the scooter and the ability to filter through peak hour traffic, so the two bikes that seem to fit the bill are the kawasaki z300 and the ktm duke 390. Light and small mean more than power for me, I just want enough to start with to keep up with traffic and have a bit in reserve to have the option to accelerate out of trouble if necessary. looking forward to getting involved in the community too. Sorry for the long first post, I try to be a bit more concise in future. Cheers, Zaphius.
