I'm not looking for a dirt bike, more a street bike...it'll prob end up being transport to and from work.
Any suggestions ?
The transport department has a list of up to 600 cc bikes that are learner legal , you will find that most of the mainstream manufacturers will have a few bikes that fit the criterior of learner legal in that engine capacity - Selecting a suitable bike will depend a lot on your size (height and weight etc) do the rounds of the dealers and try to find something that fits you and that you can place both feet flat on the ground when at a standstill .
A good rider training school (Stay upright or similar) is a great way to learn and become a good "live" motorcyclist .
