Hey all, Booked in for rider training.. really excited about getting into riding, I have a full car licence, am 23. have been driving 6 years. I feel very comfortable about hoping onto a bike & understand the dangers involved etc... that doesnt bother me. what does is that everybody you tell gives you a lecture & basically thinks your going to kill yourself... Am a wrong in thinking that a car is just as dangerous as a bike in the wrong hands? ahh, still trying to think positive about getting into riding, but yeah, all the negativity is swirling around in my head now. by the way, looking for a bike, budget under $5000... can I pick up a decent cbr250rr for that price or should I aim lower?
