Hi everyone, This might be a lengthy post, i will try and keep it short however. I have narrowed my choices down to two, possibly 3 bikes. But more likely 2... These are in preference order: 1- Yamaha MT-07 2- CBR500R ABS 3- Kawasaki ER-6NL I like the style of the MT-07, and the reviews seem good. Rider position good, light weight, etc. However, over the 3 is the only one without ABS which I am not sure I like... I realise this is a new feature and people live without it, but I assume it is a nice feature for a beginner to have. The 500 is a supersport style which I have always been a fan of. I also like the look of the Kawa in black My choices are more leaning towards 1 and 2 however. I am 6'6 - 6'7 tall (~2 metres) and weigh about 80-85kg. I will be commuting in the future once I am confident enough to ride the bike to work (45km each way, mix of highway and city riding). I am 23 at the moment, so not sure if I get to skip green P plates or not? I believe it is 25 (I turned 23 in July) at which point I would have green P for 1 year already (I have a full licence for my car). But I am sure that either of the bikes will keep me happy even after LAMS, at least for a while. I am located in NSW. Price wise, they are not a huge difference in Sydney. MT07 is $9990 Ride Away, Kawa about the same, the CBR is cheapest of the bunch and was quoted by a few shops around the $8900 mark. So cost is not a big factor here. I will be purchasing the bike new. I would like some opinions on the bikes, is it worth going non ABS, etc from more experienced riders. I will go and have a sit on the bikes this weekend to see what suits, but cant test ride them as I am going to do my pre-learners course this weekend, so no rider licence just yet... Thank you all in advance.
