Hi, I have been browesing the forums for sometime and I am continually surprised at the quality of the information that is provided by you guys. With this in note I would like to ask you a few questions. I have been riding most of my life in the country however I am new with road bikes and riding so I would just like some guidance. First of all does anyone have any more info on exactly what the L learners course is like? Secondly I am looking at picking up a bike however I may have to delay that as I only have 4000 as I have put away about 1800 for gear. That may sound a little extreme however I have already had a few accidents in my previous riding time riding dirt bikes and such. I was riding once and hit a rock doing about 70 Km's and smashed my front teeth in from not wearing a helmet. So this time I would like to make sure that I am protected and good at all times. I am looking at a CBR250rr or something similar, perhaps even the zzr-250? Something decent but I think I will have to put away another couple of grand first. Anyway anything that would be usefull would be great! And lastly hello to you all and thanks!
