Hey guys! Just got my bike learner permit yesterday, and had so much doing it! Don't know why I've waited so long to do it! Times come to choose myself a bike, and I'm having a hard time deciding what I should get. Been looking at the Honda NSR150SP, 150cc two-stroke bike that from what I've heard, is an amazing little bike, and cheap. Only thing is that I've heard mixed signals about the maintenance of these types of bikes. True, Two strokes not having a dedicated lubrication system would require more work, but is it really that bad? I've heard they will need rebuilds every 100 hours or so of operation, which seems pretty crazy! Also, having to mix oil with fuel seems like a bit of a hassle, but I've also heard that there is a oil tank under the seat that you top up, and just add fuel (the accuracy of this is unknown as I've been unable to confirm) Or after all this, it it worth me spending a bit more on an older, less attractive 4 stroke bike (250cc) that will apparently be slower, heavier and less nimble and forgiving... Or stick with a two-stroke? I'll be using it locally for the first two months or so until I'm comfortable with it, then will be a weekender up to the country and quiet roads up north-east. Any suggestions for a noobie would be great!
