Hi all, I've been following the forum silently for a while doing my research for my first bike. You guys have been very helpful so thank you all. I've done my first ever riding on a CB125E April last year on my first day of the Q-Ride course. Ended that day with a little accident that hurt. Next one was on December and passed the test without any injuries which was more fun After a long research for a learner friendly, forgiving, easy to handle yet powerful enough bike to keep me going for a while, I've decided and purchased my baby, a black 2014 CBR500R ABS with less than 50km on it. I've managed to ride for a few days before the rain started. Waiting for the sun to shine again for more riding as I'm not yet ready to ride on wet roads. Now I have the licence and my baby, I'll be more active in the forum getting advice from your experiences and maybe hoping to meet you guys at an event one day.
