Firstly I hope this is the correct place to be posting this.
Secondly I should add I know nothing about bikes so you will have to forgive any ignorance on my part.
Basically I am looking to purchase my first bike once I have passed my cbt and all that wonderful stuff (very excited). However as I have stated above I know nothing about bikes so I don't really know what I am looking for. Three bikes have been recommend to me by friends that own bikes these are :
- Yamaha CBR 125
- Yamaha YZF 125
- Honda CBR 125
Now I don't know whether these are any good so thats where I need the assist. I do know what I want from the bike however, I want something reasonably reliable, something that can handle a few scrapes as no doubt I'll drop it a few times and something that can handle the abuse of a novice. Also Im no boy racer but I would like to enjoy myself and have a bit of fun with the bike. (safe fun of course)
If its of any help im 6ft 4 so I preumse i'll want something bigger as I dont want my feet dragging along the floor and I live near Chichester, so not very built up lots of country lanes ect. Will be used to get to work and at weekends.
Try not to baffle me too much, play it safe and treat me like an idiot.
Thanks in advance
