Default Re: Bike Thread

I am a fan of learning on a smaller bike but to me a 250 is really small. For you it sounds like it would be alright as you just want a bike as a commuter, I know with me when I first started riding as soon as I felt comfortable I wanted to move up because it just wasn't enough for me. I also knew how to ride dirt bikes prior to riding motorcycles so I guess I wasn't just hopping on with no knowledge. Around a city you really wouldn't get much out of a high performance sport bike anyways but if you are anything like me you don't think about riding around the city as much as you do heading out to the country to find some nice twisties. I actually ride mostly 600's-1000's depending on what type of deals I can get whenever I feel like buying a new bike. If you have no experience at all with riding than a 250 really is going to be a good starting point. The best thing about smaller bikes is the price tag, you will pay a lot less for a 250 than a bigger bike and the cost of insurance will be a lot less as well. I say if you are really serious about getting one and have no problem with financing then any dealership will allow you to test drive them as long as you have a license or permit. I feel this is definitely the most important thing because no matter the size of a bike it is all about how you feel riding it. Some bikes are more comfortable than others and that is going to be important especially in a city because you are going to be in stop and go traffic.

Hm, i'm a little confused.

Alot of people have told me (here as well if i remember correctly) that the CBR125R wouldn't, by default, be learner legal. However, most places state that it has a 124cc liquid-cooled 4-stroke which outputs 13bhp (which i believe is legal? the limit is 14.6bhp unless i'm mis-informed. Also, what are the biggest differences between CBF125 and CBR125R? Apparently the CBF has a lighter clutch, but i've never tried either personally xD

Oh also, any opinions on the Suzuki Marauder 125 or the DR125SM? I've been warned off of chinese bikes by my uncle (he's a mechanic) who said that more often than not, the parts wear out real quick, or are faulty from transit damage, and spares are nigh on impossible to find, since key parts of the components are different. I've heard the same story from a local dealer too.
