Hey everone, i'm only new here but I was hoping you all could offer some of your 'expert ' knowledge here. I'm 16 and will be getting my learners permit very soon and I have two bikes in my eyes and can't decide which to chose. I've looked all over the net for pros and cons etc. but I figured I might as well ask first hand here . So I'm tossing up between: * A 1992 CBR250 with only 25,000km on the clock, good condition from what I can see, but comes without roadworthy/rego. They want $2000 but I could probably get it for $1750 with any luck (they want it gone before christmas!) * A 2008 Hyosung GT250R, done 8000km, great condition and comes with rego, a helmet and a drirder jacket. This is $3500 with is a little out of my price range but I can get the now money and pay it off (probably take 2-3 months with my 15hr a week job at safeway haha). So what do you guys think? I know alot of people get rid of their first bike once they get off their L's, so should I just get the cheap CBR? Or pay the $2k extra and get the newer hyosung that will last? NOTE: I can just afford the CBR at the moment but that doesnt take into account the rego/insurance etc. Thanks!
