Gday lads (and those of the female persuasion) I'm a new rider looking to get my first bike and, while I'm in no way dead set on one particular bike, a couple of ads have caught my eye and since I have only heard good things about the Across I thought I might get your thoughts on it. One ad is a private seller 1997 model with 41,000km on it. The other is from a dealership 1996 model with 54,000km on the dash. I have not inspected either bike as of yet so I do not know of their condition beyond what is included in the ad, which tells me nothing. Let me know what you think.
