Hello, I am an older bloke at 53 and have been viewing this site for a while. Anyway the mid life crisis got to me and I got my L's then didnt ride very much except for hiring a scooter for a week just to try. So now I am on my full licence. So I have been looking at buying a bike, a manual. Here are my choices after sitting on a few and getting the feel. I know the choice is big but these are the bikes I felt I liked best and suited me. Honda VT 400 or Hyosung GV 250. Both have their good & bad points. The Honda looks nice, lovely to sit on but very heavy. From reviews I have read, its also quite sluggish. The GV 250 is nice, I believe not as sluggish as the Honda and a lot lot less in price. Both bikes would be second hand and I have picked up a sense that Hyosungs aren't well like here and I appreciate your views because you have more experience.
