So im looking for a bike, just got my L's had all of 8 hours training with motorbikes and now im expected to just go out and test ride all different bikes until i find one i like?!? Everyone says, "never buy the fisrt bike you ride", i dont know about you guys but i am scared gutless about stacking a bike on a test road, especially when faced with real street conditions, and there is no way i can afford to repair one. And how am i meant to know what feels better than say a GPX or a ZZR or a VTR or GN for that matter?!? All i know is, if it rides better than a clutch-burnt CB250 then it is a sweet bike. Im really stuffed as to how i am meant to get a bike i like, that is in good mech cond., for a price i want. Anyone understand where i am coming from? Any advice? How do i make the transition from training to reality without being screwed over at every turn?
