    Welcome to Netrider, first of all.

    Lots of questions prompted by your question.

    Are you looking for a 250 or a LAMS bike. (Do you know what a LAMS bike is?)

    Are you planning on keeping the bike when your restrictions are over?

    Do you want a new bike so you know what's happened to it, or do you want second-hand because you guess you might drop it once or twice?

    What's your budget, not just for the bike but for protective gear?

    Can you afford to insure a bike?
  3. Thanks for the reply.I know I asked a general question.and I'm glad you replied with more questions.I didn't know what Lams bike is but thank google. I want second hand because I can't afford new one.At this stage I don't think I want to spend more than 5g for the whole lot.And I know once I get into it and get to know bikes,I might have different prefrences.So for the time being something to ride around and build my confidence.
    I have no idea how much the bike insurance costs coz I never had one in Australia.
  4. where did u come from mbike? what country?
  5. I come from faraway
  6. well no shit sherlock, that tells me a lot
  7. I reckon that bit of shit just cost you most of the advice that would have been forthcoming!!!
  8. just another troll
  9. sounds like another troll.... don t know how mush experience u had ..start with a little 250
  11. what does that tell you?
  12. lams stand for< learner aprove motorcycles>for a tall dude like u best way is to sit on few different size bikes and see how they feel ..:busting:
  13. Anywhere near the Sydney suburb of Perth where ships of the desert are available for sale?
  14. could be him again.
  15. was thinking the same rog
  16. I had ENDURO type long ago and tired a few in bike shop.The hight is good for me.But they dont look like a normal road bike.I like the shape of SUZUKI VL250 (LC250 INTRUDER) or any sort of similar kind.(Things I say might be funny for you guys,coz as I said I dont have any clue,so I appologize if I say something wrong).
  17. Mate, welcome back.
    For 5k, you could buy a race bike, try F400 class and travel to Victoria and race it. We are all very nice to each other down here.
  18. make sure you buy one from a nigerian scammer, they have the best bikes
  19. I need something for road not race. but Thanks for advise.coz i learned what f400 series are.
  20. Just walk up to any "Bike Club" and demand they give you one!!

    .. not sure how you will go getting a bike off them though..
