biggrin My New Baby!! :)

After a few months wait, some research & a week of shopping around, I finally bought my first bike! (i'm going to be broke for a while though lol) Three of my mates have CBR's, so i thought i'd be a little different.. maybe the powerband had something to do with it..? dunno.. Anyway, it's a 94 RGV250. I picked her up for $4500 on the road with a helmet. Also bought myself a mad Rjays jacket for $280. I'm wrapped!! :s5
Cheers
Sam

Nice purchase Sam!

A friend of mine has a GSXR750 which he bought for $710 in a public tender. It had been in a crash and had a fair bit of damage. The oil cooler and fairing took most of the brunt. After a year and around $1700 he now has a beutiful bike and quick too I might add. He took me for a ride once and I tell ya 240km/hr is damn quick in the open At least not youll beable to squeeze through traffic jams :s2:

I'd die before I ride anything non-CBR!

lol jk mate, nice looking bike there. Nothing like the speed you feel on a bike, hell I feel much faster at 50kph on my moutain bike than 120kph in the Fairlane.

What's the deal with getting your learners? The one day course then on your learners for 6 months?


/me goes and prays his mate will give him his '91 CBR250 cheap when he's done with it

Haha, I had the same reaction.

Sam, yours is one of my favourite cars in the club, so I'm glad you're not leaving us mate. Have fun on the bike and ride safe
