Hi Guys! First time poster here, been reading for a while. Found myself getting caught up in the whole "moto vlogging" watching youtubers such as Ham, AJ etc.. has really ignited my spark for wanting to get a bike and learn to ride. I've always been interested and have never actually done it but I feel like now is a good time. I don't want to spend much, but, I want to be safe and if that comes at a cost then so be it. A few things about me... Male 22 110kg 5 ft 11 Driving for 5 years Will be riding mainly around Newcaslte (to start with) Not riding to commute, just for fun. Can anybody push me in the direction of a good first bike? I really like the Suzuki Intruders but have no idea if they are good or not. Thoughts on brands such as Daelim & CF Moto? ESSENTIAL gear and recommended extra PPE/gear to stay safe. Look forward to hearing from you all!
