Hi everybody. I've just past my learners test and can't wait to get out on the road. I've picked up all the gear so far (helmet, gloves, jacket & pants) but now I'm up to the point of finding a bike. I've been told the CBR250RRs are a good learner bike, and I like to sports look. All the buying guides mention looking at friends bikes and taking an experienced rider with you when shopping. My problem is I don't know anyone with a bike. I've got friends who want to get bikes, but none have got round to doing anything yet. So I'm left here by myself not knowing what to look at, what's good and even how to buy a bike. Having only ever ridden a bike during the learners course, I'm not sure how I'll go taking bikes out for test rides. I'd be to nervous to have time looking at how the bike handles and I'd probably drop it with sweaty hands. And if I do end up buying, how do I get it home. I'm not ready for main roads yet. Surely there have been other people in this situation, so if anyone has some advice I would greatly appreciate it.
