Hi, I would like to say hello to everyone here on Netrider. I'm a newbie in the motorcycle world. I've just got my RE learner licence and planning to go through Q-ride and get my licence to ride. Good idea? I found a couple of places in Nerang doing the Q-ride courses. Any suggestion? Motorcycling is not going to be my main mode of transport, but I like the idea of going for a relaxing ride over the weekend-- early morning on rather quiet roads up the mountains for example. I would like some advice on my first bike please. I am 185cm tall and weighs 80kg. My budget is $4000 for a second hand bike. I do have an old lower back injury from playing soccer and it plays up whenever I sit down for too long or in a wrong way. As mentioned above I like to ride short, relaxing trips and certainly not an aggressive rider by miles. I do like the looks of sports bike but the riding position might not suit my back. I think the upright position of riding a cruiser might be suitable? I've done a bit of look-around and the Suzuki Intruder 250LC, Hyosung GV250 Aquila EFi and Honda VT250C caught my eyes (I saw these options from another thread here on Netrider). Any suggestions will be much appreciated. Thanks once again and wish everyone happy riding and have a good day.
