Ok so to paint a picture here. I have completed the much talked about qride in april, I have my open licence and now have the funds to get a bike. (1st bike) I walked into a Suzuki dealer in Brisbane and was having a look at the used bikes out the front. A salesman came out and we chatted about what riding I will be doing and what sort of bike i wanted. I told him I would be commuting mainly (Freeway) and a bit of weekend fun. I was looking for a SV650 or 600 Hornet, the next thing he tells me my budget is way too low... 8k including gear. I'm already thinking this guy is a knob and then he proceeds to show me a new SV650 $9500... over budget, a CB900 Hornet (nice but fark... a first bike?) and then a Gixxer 750. Is this guy just looking to offload anything he can or is he a spastic who is upping the fatality rate of Qld riders by telling them a Gix 750 or 900 hornet is an acceptable 1st bike. I may have my open licence but i am essentially a learner albeit with the luxury of more choice of bikes to learn on. What do you guys think?
