    Hi there! Welcome to the forum.

    Go see the guys at Causeway or grab a quokka... plenty of bikes either place.
    HONDA! F#@ YER!

      Hi there Polishbiker, If you wanna pay over more go to a shop, you'll get some peice of mind or if you know what your looking for in a bike buy from the second hand sections in either the sunday times or the quokka.

      I bought a bike for my wife through the sunday times and considering it's a Yamaha I got a great buy.

        PolishBiker eh?
        Welcome to the forums, I'll message you my e-mail address tomorrow.
        I went to see FZR250 with PolishBiker today and didn't like it too much.
        Asking price for that particular bike was $2900 and it is 91/96 model with 36000 kays on odo. Forks seem to be a bit twisted but no oil leakage and bike has been down on both sides but it has been reprayed. There is quite a few nicks and chips on the frame and when I took it for a spin it just didn't respond well. It would rev almost all the way to the redline but it didn't pull nice and smooth. I'm thinking crap in carbies :?:
        I'd say pass on that one mate.
        Fast, cheap & reliable ... pick any two.

                        How about Kawasaki zx7 ninja, 1997 year, 29.000kms for$6200? I think a just gonna spend a bit more money on it and get really good bike. WHat would be a point in getting something cheaper that would last 4 a few months. There is quite few bikes in quokka but to many, i just cannot decide. C U
