HEY EVERYONE!!! , i am new here and i am not sure what to start off with except a little bit about me.

My name is Dale Ward and i am 21 years old , i work at IBM in West Pennant Hills, i know Kenny and Kris and they both told me i should register on here and join the community so here i am Smile.

i am currently looking to buy a bike also as i do not have a bike to call my own yet , i was thinking an aprilia or a hyosung but kenny is adamant on wanting me to get a ninja Razz.

i dont have much experience with bikes (laugh at the noob Very Happy) but i am really interested in learning , looking forward to hearing from you all.

-Dale

welcome dude!
for a starter bike just pick one that you like the style - cos you wont be keeping it forever anyway. Ppl say get a naked one cos fairings = more expensive to replace..

Welcome aboard and I have to agree - for an inexpensive, reliable, light but solid, fun (and not slow) intro to bike riding it's hard to go past a Ninja. There are good reasons why they are the number one selling bike in Australia (postoe bikes don't count!)

wow thanks everyone i was not expecting so many replies , you sure are a friendly bunch , looks like i will have to try and grab a ninja now (always secretly wanted one when i was 12) ... i was just checking out most of your avatar's and you guys have some pretty powerful bikes.

so i am currently on the bike hunt at the moment and i was told i should learn on a 125cc but most 125cc are not full size bikes off memory and because i am really tall (6'3) i don't think a 125cc is an option so i think ill just jump straight into a 250cc.


Also regarding bike security what is the most common set up as i cannot be around all the time to break the would be thief. Disc Brake Locks/ Alarms - Pager Combo , i know most bikes come with steering lock but that is not enough.


P.S Cameron's sig = hahaha

I use a disc brake lock. Just dont forget to take it off before riding off
If you are tall, then a 125 really isnt for you. i got my licence on a CBR125...sat on one the other day...i really dont know how i did so many Km on the little thing.

Just again on the disc lock, attach a lead from the disc lock to either your left or right brake/clutch lever as a reminder. Both are inexpensive yet are effective actual & visual deterrents.

I think I paid $70.00 for mine or it might have been $65.00 not to sure now. Anyways it's the Xena brand and I brought it from BikeBiz at Granville and it works really well Smile. You only have to move your bike a bit and it goes bananas Laughing ...

You can probably get something cheaper on eBay. But you know how the eBay biz is sometimes and I guess it depends on how much you value your bike. Thats why I went with the Xena as I cannot put a price on Dorothy although many have asked Laughing .

Oh yes and you can always get one of those GPS trackers. I came across some really tiny ones the other week which I am thinking of bringing in.



EDIT:

Here you go I actually told a fib they are only $59.95 sorry about that.

Welcome mate, stay with at least 250cc and up. I'm 6'1 and the CBR125 was such midgets bike. As everybody has been saying, the Ninja 250R are an excellent choice.

I don't have anything against Hyosungs personally but prepared to get flamed up if you do end up one :p
