I've had my L's for about 3 months, but havent bought a bike yet due to money issues, I got a car loan the same week I got my L's.. I've managed to clock up between 1000 and 2000kms on a GPX250 which is my housemates commuter. I'm usually allowed to take the GPX out and go riding while he is there on his CBR600.. Which by the way is extremely frustrating, as I like bigger/longer rides than him, and would like to be able to just go when I want rather than when suits him. But since it's his bike, I dont show my frustration, just my gratitude that he lets me ride it at all. It's a 96 gpx250 with 30K on the clock, will be sold with roadworthy and some rego for $2000 which I think is a good price. Do you?? I think I would much prefer either a VTR, Bandit or a Hornet 250, but dont think I can afford one anytime soon. Plus IF i buy the bike off him he still wants to ride it to work every day untill he's off his restrictions in 8 months time. It seems like a complicated deal to me that could end up messy.. But is it worth it for a decent $2000 bike, or should I wait untill I can afford to get one of the other bikes I mentioned, which might be as far as 8 to 10 months down the track. If I had my own bike I would probably be in Yea right now and hoping I dont see any Kangaroos on the way home.
