  1. Hi everyone my names stephen and i'm a n00b when it comes to bikes. :D

    I dont have a bike as of yet but i'm in the market for either a cbr 250 or a vtr 250, unfortunately for me i have no where near enough to get a bike just yet.

    I'm not a complete bike nut like my girlfriend is but i have wanted to learn to ride for a few years, i guess i never got around to it :p
  2. welcome :D

    dont narrow the choices down just yet tho, theres plenty of great bikes out there. and going by the huge difference between the two bikes you've mentioned, i'm guessing you really dont know what your after from a bike yet :wink:

    have a peek through the newbie section here, theres plenty of good advice for ya :D
  3. I think he wants an over-priced Honda 250, Coconuts. ;)

    Just kidding, Demaros. Welcome to the fray, we're mostly friends here. Mostly. :wink:
  4. Welcome

    Welcome Demaros
    If you can't find answers to your questions here, you're not trying hard enough! This is the supreme repository of knowledge on all things motorcycling, and there's some people here who, in fact, think they know everything about everything. Avoid them!
    Seriously, (although I WAS serious about that) most any question you may ask has probably been asked before, and received 100 different and often contradictory answers.
    Toddle along to the Coffee Nights and make yourself known to the gang, and they'll give the good oil (metaphorically, and, if necessary, literally as well!)
  5. bwahahahahhahahaa :LOL:

    zipped :wink:
  6. you are both right, i have basically no idea when it comes to bikes :p i love naked bikes though they are so sexy, thats why i like the vtr 250.
  7. Welcome to the mad house. :D
    Don't rush to choose, try them all as many here will recomend, find one that suits you.
