  1. Hi everybody

    I'm new to the motorcycle scene, have just picked up a bike last week, and just begun to ride on quiet streets.



    Looking forward to sharing experiences with you guys in the future!

  8. Sorry i didn't go into too much detail in original post
    I picked up an 05 Honda VTR 250

    Awesome bike, very easy to turn and handle, although I've just come home from 3rd session with it, and I was on a bigger road doing 60-70 downhill/uphill and curves and the cross wind made it quite scary at times - i could feel the bike wobble slightly. I just tried to ignore the wind and kept focusing on what was ahead.

    There is a lot of wind noise once I go faster than 60kph, is that due to the upright stance of the bike, or my helmet's design? It's an Rjays SP2
