Gday, Im already feeling bad as im typing posting this post as its very similar to others. I am 178cm tall weighing 95kg(will lose some soon hehe). I was only attending to ride on the weekends with mate but possible chances to ride a couple of days to uni. Initial it was the CBR250RR i wanted but after reading forums and opinions i am now confused. People say: -CBR's are uncomfortable to ride after 30mins(but they're hot!) -CBR parts are very cheap and have a reliable, lasting engine. -CBR's are fast! -Get a new bike for the peace of mind rather a problem making 15-20yr old bike -Get an old bike because you're likely to drop it -Get a comfortable bike!(but they're ugly) -get a bandit, hornet, ect...(i like the middle and back but the fronts missing the sporty covers) I really want a sporty look and power, yet i dont want to give up comfort and big $$$. The reason i want a bike is because of the high petrol prices, free parking, zip through the jammed traffic and they're fun! Its between CBR250RR, gpx250 or zzr250(i think they're the same?) and gsx250 Across. Unless you guys have better suggestions? Ps: looking for the cheapest bike possible, max $4000(i know its a very low budget but possible!). Thanks!
