HI everyone, Great site and good info. I will be upgrading from my two wheeler Pushiee to motorbike shortly. I am fairly new to this motorbike scene. I am hoping to get my learner on this satuarday. I am planning to buy a RGV on sat as well. You ask why RGv and not some POS or other bikes? I really don't know but my heart is stuck with RGV. I am not young n stupid so I will not try to ride it in power band, till I am off my L's. I narrowed down my search from CR250RR--> VTR250---> VT250 ( spada) ---> RGV250. I know the 2stroker will be a high maintenance bike, so I am also looking for some learning! My current budget is 3K for bike, 1K for riding gear and 1K in case something goes wrong.
