Hi all, I thought it was about time I did a welcome post, having had my first bike for two weeks, and having spent many hours over the past few months reading netrider forums in contemplation of getting my Ls and buying a bike. My primary motivator for buying a bike was to escape the crowded trains on my daily commute of about 15km into the Melbourne CBD. I was looking for something cheap, dependable, and of course still plenty of two-wheeled fun. So having obtained my L's at the end of December, I am now the proud owner of a Honda CB125e. Yes, it is a very basic bike, and not exactly powerful, but so far I'm having a blast. Importantly, it is more than capable of keeping up with traffic on my commute and is very easy to learn on. No doubt I will eventually upgrade it, but for now it suits my need perfectly.
