Hello everyone at MCN, Im new to the site and motorcycles in general!
Ive just passed my CBT and Im hoping to buy a bike in the near future to practice riding and maintaining. Then after a few months I'll go in for my proper test.
Heres the problem!
I love the look and style of cruisers. Its these bikes that got me to learn in the first place so I have my heart set on buying one. However, Ive heard they arent great to take tests on because theyre harder to corner.
Some bikes that have caught my eye are the Hyosung Cruiser 2, Suzuki Intruder, Marauder, Honda Shadow etc.
But apparently cruisers arent great for tall people too, and since im 6ft 4 and 14 stone that might be a problem!
Please could anyone give me some advice? Is there any cruiser which is good for learners? Should I buy a cruiser or a standard bike? It doesnt have to be 125cc, as I may restrict it until I pass my test. Im looking to pay up to £1000 for a second hand one.
Thanks in advance guys and dolls!
