  1. Hi all,
    Iv been lurking here for a while now so i thuoght i'd come out and say Hi.
    I finally talked my wife into letting get a bike :) so i booked in yesterday to get my L's (Jan 28/29th).
    After much looking i'v decided against my first choice of a CBR250RR and i'm getting a
    nice shiney yellow Hyosung GT250R (expects to be beaten to death with owners manual for saying Hyosung
    I was stunned by the difference in insurance costs for these two bikes, I'm
    33 with rating 1 on my car, the CBR was $893 fully comp and the Hyosung was $309 fully comp. Big difference,
    insurance companies must love all learners when they buy CBR's
