  1. Hi everyone. I'm new here. I got my L's a while ago and I've been learning on my friend's ZZR250 (he's not using it and generously let me learn on it!) and after a few weeks i'm starting to feel pretty good about it!

    My name's Maddie, from Sydney, nice to meet you all!

    I'm sure I will have loads of questions and I'll try my best to help with other people's questions too. I have like a whole 2 weeks experience!

    hehe cheers
  2. Welcome to Netrider Maddie:)

    You have about the same level of experience riding as me :)
  3. Welcome, though I think you got the wrong forum. So if you can't find this topic in a couple days it's in the birthday/intro forum no doubt.

    I see a Duckhunt dog with a duck there... closet nerd! I saw you coming a mile away :p

    Enjoy the learning, and be safe!
  4. And a Police fan to boot!

  8. Welcome to NR!!!

    Good luck with your friends bike, are you planning to get one of your own soon?
  9. welcome maddie!

  10. Yo Maddie,

    I dont have much welcoming authority but welcome anyway haha. Are you thinkin of getting a ZZR for yourself? Theyre cheap and i really like them!
  11. Hi all!

    I really don't know what kind of bike I'll be getting. I originally wanted a Honda CB250 but I've been having loads of fun riding the ZZR250. My concern about the bikes with the faring is that if you drop them (not that I plan on it but you know...) then you're gonna scratch all that up.

    On the other hand if you drop a naked bike, are you going to be more likely to damage it?

    In terms of looks... The ZZR250 didn't please me at first but now I catch myself looking at it from my bedroom window. It's actually quite sexy.

    I don't want to spend more than about $4000 when I get my own bike. And not more than about 6 years old. And nothing smaller than a 250. But certainly not bigger than 500mL either.

    I just want something efficient and reliable I guess.
