      I think when my contract gets renewed, I will purchase a newer car (I refuse to buy new cars). I was looking at a VW Rabbit or GTI.

        Riding a motorbike is actually probably easier than a push bike because the bike creates the inertia and you are basically locked in on it. If you haven't ridden anything I'd definitely try and at least find a 250 to start out on and see how you go.

        Basically on a 250 if you give it too much juice you just give yourself a scare, a 600 sports bike will be out from under you in no time. Certainly should start out in a nice big empty car park instead of on the road though!

        Only real reason I started with the 250 was because of the law over here and because my commute that took 15 minutes on a bike took more like 30 in a car and an hour and a half on a bus and I really value my sleep so I wanted to be riding asap not wait a year to get the big boy license!

        If you do go 250 I highly recommend the 250r Ninja 2008 onward model, it is an excellent learning bike that has done me no wrong and because they are pretty common parts are cheap if anything goes wrong. They have enough power to be a lot of fun and are really light which makes throwing them around on a track heaps of fun if you are so inclined but at the same time aren't so powerful as to present any difficulties riding them.

        As posted, hoping to get one of the Orange and Silver CBR 1000s as the next set of wheels, mostly about getting the money because like everything in Australia it is stupid expensive over here. They are about $17k over here but still awesome!

        Also... be careful buying second hand bikes, you want to make sure it hasn't been thrashed or dropped and especially check the tyres, if it has done roughly 7500 miles then it is probably due for a tyre change so see how the tyres look as it will cost a fair bit to replace them. Bikes are something I'd recommend spending the bit extra to get new just for the peace of mind.

        I skipped a 250, and started with a GSXR-600 (its actually a few pages back in this thread)
        Got a mate with one of them, nice fun to ride.


        Props to BK on the sig!

            Bought it new in 06, around this time to be exact. Had it made from the factory, 1k over invoice, that way it was the color and options i wanted. It took about 8 or 9 weeks back then so not sure what the wait would be these days.

                    I like them a lot. I dont even want a new one. I just want a damned upgrade. And they're not exactly junk....they're reliable toyota's. Not looking to break the bank. lol.

                    It's either that or Mazda 3 or 6.

                    Something that does look ****** and will last a long while.

                    Thanks BoneKrusher^

                      I saw that at the auto show and it gets the worst miles per gallon I have ever seen. They had to hide the sticker behind the tinted windows so no one would see that it gets 10 miles to the gallon.

                        Well i've heard differently on the scions motors they aren't like the old Toyota motors.I would go with a corolla if you want a good Toyota or heck find a nice Neon that is in the mid 2000's for cheap.I hear you on the long lasting part though.I'm trying to sell my 4runner so I can commute to work and still have a nice ride for good/descent gas mpg. I would go honda civic hb but all the ones here are crap looking.Would love a crx tho.

                                meh, got it with the V6 which makes it less of one. Got the interior pretty "pimped" out with leather, navi, xm and such. I really like it....and its awesome so I don't really care.
