Hey, this is my first post on these forums and was hoping you guys could sling me some upgrade advice. I've been on the GPX250 for a few months now and with my upgrade only about 12 months ahead I'm not sure which way to go. I guess the factors to consider are my budget - only up to around $7000 (being a pov student even that's probably pushing it) - and the sort of riding I do: commuting to work via punt road and through albert park and the occasional jaunt to see my mates: down the south eastern or dandenong rd. In terms of performance I guess I wanna go for something that accelerates quickly, runs smooth in speeds between 70 and 120 and doesn't require too much maintenance outside of oil and tyres. So that leaves me thinking should I go for something like a "racier", two stroke 250: RGV/RS/NSR? or is a a 98 CBR600 or 95 CBR900 gonna be better value? I've seen a few CBR600's around for the $7K ish mark with about 30000ks on em, would I still get a few years out of one of these? Similarly there are some nice looking 95 CBR900's with about 45000Ks for the same kinda price. Sorry about the broad questions, any advice you guys could give would be appreciated.
