Hi all, I've just got my L permit last Sunday, so now it's time to really seriously decide which bike to buy. I'm posting this in the Cruisers sub-forum because I'm definitely getting a cruiser. Just not sure which one. Standing 5'6" short and weighing just under 60kg, my first thought was to go with a 250. Either a Honda VT250C (VL25), Kawasaki VN250, or Suzuki VL250 LC. But then the instructor recommended everyone to get biggest we can get. And this seems to be the general consensus over here too when it comes to cruisers. I love the looks of Yamaha's XVS650. So this will be my preference if I were to get a bigger LAMS approved cruiser. It's rather expensive though. What if I drop it? What do you reckon? Should I stick with my original plan and get a 250? Or just get the 650 V-Star?
