Hi Guys, I recently passed my P's and am riding a 98 Suzuki Across. Im using the bike mainly for commuting and am doing approx 300kms per week (aprox 15,000 per year). Half of my trip is on normal roads and the other half on the motorway. What im currently considering is selling the across and replacing it with a 2nd hand 06 or 07 Hyosung gt250r. The main reason being that you get a bike thats approx 8 years newer with alot less kms for not to much more $. If i was purely using the bike on weekends then i would definately keep the across but im worried that using it as a daily commuter will see the value of it reduce considerably as i clock up more kms. I know alot of people will probably suggest keeping the across for the next 12 months until its time to upgrade but the other thing that i need to take into consideration is that i may not be able to afford to upgrade to a bigger bike once im unrestricted and the cheaper cost of greenslip and insurance on a 250 is definately an advantage. I have considered getting a new Kawasaki 250R but the budget wont stretch that far. What are peoples opinions?? Do you think swapping to a gt250r is a good idea or should i keep the across? (Please keep in mind that im not looking to turn this into a b**ch about Hyosungs thread) I realise that you get what you pay for and that the quality of the hyosungs may not be quite up to the standards of other brands but providing it gets me where i need to go and is reliable then that all i can really ask for. Has anyone riden both an across and a gt250r that can give feedback on both in relation to which bike performs better, has a more comfortable riding position etc?
