Gday, I just got my L's today and I'm stoked, but I don't have a bike to ride yet and could do with some advice. I'm not going to be commuting at all, this will mostly be for fun in the twisties (when I get some skill) and eventually track days. For now I'm just going to practice in quiet backstreets. My plan is to get a cheap first bike to get me through my L's, been thinking of a cheap Sachs, seen a 150KN going for bout $1000 on bikesales with 2000km on the clock. Reason being, it's cheap and naked, I figured I won't mind if I drop it as much as a full faired sports bike. In a few months I will get something like a CBR250 but only when budget allows and when I'm more confident that I wont drop it in the driveway or something stupid like that. Is this a good strategy? Will I be able to make much money back on resale as I'll only keep this bike for a few months? Are there any other bikes that you could recommend? I was keen on a postie until I found out that they don't have a clutch... Also, how do I find out how much rego will cost? Does rego depend on the value of the bike or its capacity? How about track days, how do I get involved and how much do they cost? If any one has any more advice please feel free to add. Thanks.
