Hello all, I am stepping accross from dirtbikes to the road (yay). I have got my Learners permit, and will have 3 months on restrictions, then another 12 months restrictions on my full licence. Not wanting to be illegal and ride a big bike, i am looking for a Learner Legal road bike. I am in Melbourne, so interstate laws need not apply. Firstly, I have been hearing rumours that there is going to be new laws about what is/isnt allowed for people on restrictions. Something about power/weight?? Can anyone elaborate on this? Secondly, yes i am 195cm tall, and i "look like an ape on a kids bmx" as my so called mate informed me after we went for a little ride on friday, i was on his old ZZR-250. So i am looking for the biggest bike i can ride. By biggest i mean physical size will be more important than outright power. I am looking for a "sports" / "sports tourer" / "naked muscle" styles of ROAD bike, not a dirtbike with road reg, and not a supermoto. I am also looking for 2nd hand, as i dont see the point of loosing out $$$ from buying a new bike, to sell it 15 months later. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am kinda biased towards the major jap manufacturers like Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha and Kawasaki. CBR250's, ZZR's and the like wont be considered as they are too small! I have heard of a Honda CB250F Hornet. It seems to be called a "big" 250 due to its physical size and similarity to the 600cc version. I know it's an import and am completely aware of the risks with buying an imported vehicle.. i use to drive one every day for years! A well maintained bike is a well maintained bike, be it Australian Delivered, or an import. I'll be able to nut out a dud within minutes of inspecting it. So feel free to suggest bikes, and i hope there's other lenky riders like myself. Thanks for any help in advice, and look foward to hearing replies. Shep.
