  • Just bought 1st bike :D

    Hey guys and Gals,

    Im over the moon right now.
    I just bought my 1st bike.
    It's an 88 GPX250. I know its and oldie but its only done 68k and its mechanically sound.

    She doesnt look like much atm thanks to a few drops but luckily thats something i can fix myself once i choose a colour

    And the most important thing she was cheap

    Congrats So long as it's mechanically good, don't be too worried, it's the same spec as an 07 gpx

    Got your RE yet?
    “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

        Yeah the waiting list is a bit of a pain in the arse. Definitely get at least one professional lesson though - the instructor will give you an honest assessment of where you're at and what you need to do...

                That bike was on eBay wasn't it? Great buy, nice and cheap and no different to the newer GPX's.

                      Yeah it's the one that was on ebay.

                      Went and looked at it today and i used to work with his brother. its a small world. Mate took it for a spin, talked money and i pick it up tomorrow night. By the time we got back home he'd already pulled it off ebay. I know because i wanted to get the pic to show ppl but it was gone haha.

                      I've never seen a white one either... its unique but its not staying that way haha.

                      Once i get the body smoothed over i'll be painting it all and it deffinately wont stay white.
