I am never sure if I post in right part of forums. I am still on my L's and have to have r-e for 12mnths but already shopping for the bike I will upgrade to when confident on the ninja 300. I assume we all do this when new hahahaha. I am thinking of a Kawasaki ZX6R (636). It looks great, seems to go hard and given the roads around here it would be a nice ride. I could actually ride it before my 12mnths is up, I just have to display l plates and be supervised by someone with open licence etc. Maybe I should concentrate on getting my r-e then shop, but can't help it.
