Hello, I live near Melbourne and I'm thinking about getting a bike. I have never ridden before but it seems like fun. I have a few questions about whether or not I will be able to afford to. I hope it is okay to ask here. For starters, I have a car so the bike would be just for fun. I do however only have a small budget $4000-$4500 and I'm thinking its just not enough to get a bike. There will be some spare but I'd rather have that for repairs and such down the road. I was thinking gear would run me around $2000, $1000 for testing, rego, third party insurance. LeavIng a small amount for a bike. If I can't afford to get all the safety gear I will just have to save up. I am not willing to skimp on safety gear. I'm not looking for anything flash, just a basic bike to get me started. Looks don't matter. I am also happy to do some work on the bike if need be, no experience with bikes but some with cars. It doesn't need to be fast but the roads around here are 80-100km/h so it will need to handled this. I know it is probably a hard ask but i thought I would ask and see what you guys thought. Oh and as it seems important I am about 175cm tall and weight about 60kg. Thanks for any input.
