  6. hi mabe someone could answer this question if the gpx is 27kw and the er5 is 37kw does that 10kw make a big difference for the extra costs of the 500.
  7. certainly does over beers at the pub Wilburr
  8. Welcome to NR Wilburr and well done getting your Learners.

    As others have suggested, try as many bikes as you can for size and comfort. Me thinks the GPX won't be a contender as I think you'll probably find you'll have your knees under your chinny chin chin. Hit all the dealers in town and sit on their used bikes in the yards. Don't mean to sound glib but ... worry about the $$$ later, firstly establish your safety and comfort factor. You can then search the various bike sales on line for the one that suits and perhaps achieve your price requirements.

    Happy riding.
