Just got my first bike

  1. Hehe

    what a great weekend

    Just got my first bike. A Hyosung GT 250. I like the look of the bike without the fairings - also less of a hastle if it gets dropped.

    It gets delivered next week - cant wait.

    I think I got a good deal. I tried on a good few helmets and found the most expensive the most comfortable - i figure best to get the best I can afford. The retailer gave me a few hundred $ of a Shoei :). No chance on the price of the bike - they were selling like hot cakes.
  2. Congrats :)
    These seem like a really popular bike everybody seems to be getting the GT 250's
  3. Congrats on the new bike Pete !
  4. That's a pretty good summary of the feedback from others, too, Pete, you can gouge for a discount on gear, but don't expect the dealer to give anything on the bike; if you don't buy it at full price, someone else will.
  5. hee hee got mine first

    Hi Pete,

    Picked up my Black GT250 on Thursday, absolutley wrapped in it. :grin:

    Love the naked look plus I just love sayinh that word :) Must say that people not associated with bikes say things like, "how do pronounce that or a hyo what?" :roll:

    But people who know bikes generally are pretty complimentary about the make.

    Anyway have fun and I look forward to swapping tales of how good the bikes are. :LOL:
  6. Hi Pete,
    congrats mate. they are a great looking bike. A close mate has also recently got one and i've had a couple of rides on it and i thought it was a very good bike indeed. Did you get it from Dale Britten (or whatever his name is) in Vic Park?
    and welceome to the forum. enjoy.

  7. Congratulations Pete ;)

    I think the GT 250 looks great :)

  10. I pick up my shinny yellow GT250 on saturday :) .Peter stevens wanted $6330 on the road for a year but i said "hey, come on, you can do better than that" and he said "ok, how does $6000 sound" :) + 10% off any gear :)
