  1. Hey Guys...

    In the process of getting my license at the moment so thought I would join the local online community.

    I was looking at getting the Suzuki DRZ400 but then I took it out on the road and didn't feel comfy at all (way too high for my liking) so now looking at cruisers lol.


  2. Hey mate, welcome to netrider.

    I was dead set on a ninja 650r til i actually sat on one. Sit on anything that you can get your hands on and eventually you'll find one that fits you just right.
  3. Welcome, to netrider ;) There are some great people here, youll have fun.
  4. Go for a Kawasaki Versys...no..on second thought don't! I'll get too jealous :D
  5. Hi Jay,

    Welcome to netrider. There aren't too many WA members so I encourage you to get a little involved. As for your bike, in WA you are still restricted to a 250CC only until you get your big bike licence. If you are looking at a cruiser, I would suggest a Yamaha Virago/Vstar, or a Suzuki Intruder. They seem to be the most common, and you can put both feet on the ground easily, even if you are a dwarf.
  6. Thanks for the welcome guys :)

    middo, the word is that LAMS is being implemented here in november/december this year which opens up some bigger options than the 250's.

    Been doing my lessons on a 125cc Honda and feel pretty comfy on that so far...
