I've only recently gotten into the whole motorcross bikes etc, and riding for me is really quite easy. Took me 30 seconds to get used to my mates rt100, and i learnt from that. Then a week later i moved up to another friends rm-80. Powerband = fun. Got used to that and just recently i had a go on a 250. These things are so much fun, and i hope to buy my own 250 soon. In 3 weeks i can go to get my Riders permit (Motorbike L's) and i'm hoping to buy a roadbike, they are a lot cheaper than cars, cheaper to run, dont have to worry about friends wanting a lift somewhere, and it sure as hell would solve my problems with transport to and from work. Does anyone here own a motorbike, whether it be a road or dirt bike? What kind is it, and what bike would be great for a learner rider?
