Hi there! Well as you can see I'm kinda new to the forums, just registered and all, although I have been trolling your forums for quite some time now. A very good source of information on them bikes Well... I just got my learner's. Wait that's lieing, in fact I'm going to do the computer test tomorrow but it should be easy. I really really want a ZZR 250 or GPX 250 (I will not ask which is better, enough threads about that around !). CBR250RRRRRRRRR are just too overpriced nowadays, especially during the summer! Here comes the newb question. I asked a few friends how much it would cost me to bring a second hand bike to the mech's for a check up, and they said it would be quite costly. Any rough idea how much? Also, I read that there are a few guys around here who know a lot about bikes and sometimes help (of course not free of cost) fellow riders when comes inspection time. Can anyone confirm or deny this? It would be pointless asking for names right now, I guess I must first know where the 'inspection' is taking place (which suburb etc). By the way, I'm in Sydney Anyone taking the time to reply to this post, thank you!
