        I spent $4000 on a Kwaka ZZr250. Good fun and all, only had it 8 days cause a lady went through a red light and folded me but it was a good bike to learn on.

        In all honesty, I'd seriously look at either
        1. get a CBR250
        or
        2. Find peeps who ride bigger bikes, get your open learners license and get a 600 right after you pass your 250 license. ya can do that now I think!

              yep you can get your open learners as soon as you pass your R-E. You just have to wait a year untill you can do the final test.

                    beh.

                    beh
                    then i'd have to wear a big orange thing around me, i'll be like an odd one out, or risk getting a summons/ big legal thingy

                    FUCKING good idea, but is it worth the price of either?


                    what do you lot think?
                    plus i couldnt ride on my own without someone else for a year!


                    MAYBE

                    LOL

                      if you want to stay legal and learn =>gpx,zzr,cbr,zx2
                      if you want power, stay legal and fall off => RGV250
                      if you have lots of money, want power, stay legal and fall off => RS250
                      if you have lots of money, balls, life insurance and a good lawyer => any big sportsbike of your choice eg R6, R1, Gixxer
                      if you want a good deal => my zx2

                        buy zipdrives ZX2R dude ... theyre good bikes (and his has carbon bits too)

                        my opinion anyway

                        speaking of which ...zipdrive where u get the carbon mirrors and indicators ??
                        Some say he eats sidchrome for breakfast

                        Some say he only showers on even days of the week

                        Some say he put an R1 motor in a coffee machine

                        All we know is he's Hewie.

                          Basically jamie its like i been telling ya for what a month now?

                          If ya want a 250 to beat all other 250's get a Suzi RGV
                          If ya want a not quite so fast but a shit load more reliable and about 100kms more to a tank of go juice then get a CBR-250-RR
                          If ya wanna be beaten down the freeway by a CBR-250-RR with a pillon on then buy a ZX2R

                          (chuckles at hewie and zip drive)

                          Big it up fellas.

                          For my money i went the 250-RR cause they is generally known as the fastest most reliable 250.... however they a bit more expensive than a ZX2,GPX,ZZR,RGV, Yammaha Zeal

                          I'm the noob you all pwn!
