Howd'y All I'd like to introduce myself to everyone. My name is Mitch and I live in Cairns... hows ya'll? Anyways, now I got that outta the way, back to my question. I'm looking to purchase a secondhand 250 roadbike to learn on and was wondering if any of you have pro's and con's for each bike etc. I have a budget of around 5k. I dont want something brand new but fairly decent. Also, I know this sounds like im a crotch rocket racer, but in your suggestions I need something that is higher up in the power level class. Reason I say this is I'm 95kg and 6'2". Ive been riding dirt bikes for years and know how to ride reasonably well. Ive been looking at possibly a yammy zeal, hornet or spada. (im new, so open my eyes) So, In all which would be some suggestions for a good solid 250 base. Prefer 4 stroke. Thanks in advance for all that can help me in my search.
