Howdy all. I have just become a member of the forum, so i can join a motorcycling community. I currently have my restricted license in the NT but will be getting the restriction off soon. I've done up to the intermediate METAL course. I have a bit of experience riding trail bikes. But i'm looking at getting myself a 250 in Darwin, as i work up there but don't live there. So i need something that i can leave in a shed for about 3 months at a time. I'm looking at getting myself something under $3000. Trail/ road i don't care. I think my options are XR250, DRZ250, CBR250, ZZR250 or GPX250. But we'll see. When i get back to Melbourne in the new year i've pretty much decided on getting one of 3 bikes. ZZR-600, SV-650S or a Ducati ST2. I want a bike for motorway riding and minimal city riding. But i'm looking forward to becoming a contributing member of your community. Cheers Conny.
