Wasn't too sure where to pop this thread but, here we go. Just curious, Who bought their second bike new? I know its a terrible idea to buy your first bike new with learning and dropping and upgrading and so on but I am looking at a middle class bike (600) and am wondering if its worth getting one new. Depreciation doesn't seem to be as extreme with middle class supersports, compared to lams bikes. (% wise) Should I look at new bikes or stick to second hand. I'm planning on keeping whatever I get for quite a while. Also wondering what you have done/plan to do. Cheers!
