Hi Everyone, I'm Darren and im from Melbourne Victoria. I have just got my motorcycle L's and have found this site while looking for information on motorbikes, particularly pro's and cons of particular models. At the moment I am tossing up between the Yamaha Virago 250 and the Yamaha V-Star 650, the main reason for that is that even though i like the look, and the price, of the virago I'm not sure that it will happily cary my 120kg frame safely down the highway at the posted speed limit without revving its guts out. I'd appreciate the advice of those of you who have owned these or similar bikes particularly those who have lived life on the hefty side. Looking forward to hearing from you all. Take Care, Darren. p.s. I did the two day learner course at HART in Somerton with Mark as my instructor and found it to be an excellent and suportive environment to learn in.
