Hey All, Well, I am halfway to my L's (did the mandated Pre-L's last weekend, and will hopefully do the knowledge/eyesight test this week) and of course, that leaves the next two parts of my journey to biking to come - the bike and the gear. Gear should be easy enough to figure, but I am hoping for some advice on the bike. My Pre-L's was done on Honda CBF's (at H.A.R.T. in St Ives, Sydney) and they were good. They had the "idiot bars" on them to protect you if you dropped the sucker, but I like the riding position and can't really see myself being a full-leathers and street-racer kind of rider, so it looked pretty close to what I wanted. But, with more research come more options - I found the VTR250, which seems to have a very similar shape, but 2-cylinder instead of 1, and, if the stats I found are correct, smaller fuel capacity (seems funny...) So, looking for some advice - which would be a better option for a commuter/first (legal) bike/weekend cruiser?
