Hey guys, first post on here. I passed my test on Friday (18 Jan) just before the new law came in. I am a total noob when it comes to biking and my only real experience aside from lessons is when i rented a 125 for a weekend.
That being said, I want to buy a 600cc sports bike. I was hoping for something around year 2000 and not spending anymore than 16/1700 on it, due to being told that most riders drop their first bike in the first year. I will mainly be riding to and from work (a 25 mile each way motorway journey).
Would anyone know a suitable bike and a rough insurance price on it? I've just turned 27 and have no NCB built up. I have had my own car insurance fully comp and with 8 years NCB but i'm sure this won't benefit me any when it comes to insuring a bike.
