Howdy, I was referred here by my mate Gav' who also joined recently. I was wondering if you guys could give me a little advice. I've recently turned 18 and am doing my riding training/course thing during late March with HART. Now as far as a bike, I've been offered a Kawasaki ZZR 250 for $3000. It's only done 4500 Ks and has only been dropped once. At the moment I've not got the finances to pay up front and I fear the bike will be sold before I've got the money together. Because I've just started a new job I believe the banks will be hesitant to give me a loan... but I'll be sure to try anyway. None the less, I'd love your advice on the issue and possible alternatives if the bike gets sold. Thanks a lot.
