OK – so I’m new to riding and have decided on an RS 250 or RS 125 for my 1st bike. Yup, stupid decision I know but I’m just after a bike for fun on weekends to ride in the country on our winding roads and I really like what I’ve read and seen of these bikes. I’m just wondering if anyone could give some advice on which would be better for a new rider – ie are they pretty similar in terms of difficulty to ride etc. I’m just over 6ft if this makes any difference. Also, just a bit concerned about buying a used RS 250 as I don’t want to end up buying someone else’s track thrashed machine – is their anything in particular to watch out for in buying a used RS compared to other bikes? Thanks heaps – any advice would be great!
