in your opinion whats the best bike a newbie should get for his first bike?? my first bike was a honda vtr250, it was a great little bike it was light, and zippy and enough power to get me to rev up if i need to. i also had a good ride on the cbrr250 and ninja250 those was heaps fun but to me for a newbie the honda vtr250 was definatly the easiest to learn on and i'd have to say a better newbie bike. (on what i've ridden) so saying that i have obviously not ridden all the newbie bikes so guys in your opinion what do you think is the best bike for a newbie??? i currently ride a honda vt400 which is also a lams bike but its not as easy to ride as a lot of the other lighter bikes out there.
