New Rider - Bike Choice?

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by cparas, Nov 3, 2015.

  1. Hi All,

    New rider here and new to forums.

    Looking to buy an old LAMS approved cruiser in the next few weeks. Would prefer Japanese motorcycles, such as a Yamaha Virago 250 or similar. Any other suggestions?


  2. G'day and welcome to Netrider, cparascparas.

    Some other LAMS cruisers to consider: Kawasaki Vulcan S, Suzuki Boulevard S40, Suzuki Intruder 250LC and Honda Shadow.
  3. Don't buy a virago. If u want abit older the Kawasaki el250 is a heaps better bike.
  4. welcome aboard:] I can voucher for the Kawasaki EL I've had mine for 3 years, and its been great, there is a bloke where I work who I have spoken with, he rides the VN Kawasaki as a daily commuter and he's had no problems with his either.
