Good taste my friend!

 

The KTM used to belong to a friend of mine, but he ran into some car trouble and needed some quick cash and he threw out a price that I couldn't walk away from.

 

I have regular street tires for summer and a set of knobbies that I studded for ice racing. It's easily the most fun impulse buy I have ever made.

 

Phil I think you're getting senile lol you've posted in here before did you forget about that?

Yeah, but since someone asked what everyone had I thought I would share again.

 

or I wanted to look at some cool pics since the weather around here still isn't quite right to break out the bikes yet.

 

And getting senile implies that there was a time in which I was not senile ;) this may or may not be the case.

R3 you say? Hm seems like a solid bike 

 

I'd love to add a smaller CC bike to the stable. In the meanwhile this will be my recommendation for a beginner bike to friends.

 

I am now less than 3 weeks away from my FZ6R being paid off and title in hand under my name. Feels fantastic

Saw someone in my neighborhood brapping around on a WR. The way he was shifting and riding he looked like a new rider. Prob his first season.

I really like the smaller CC sport bikes. 

 

Back in my FSAE days we bought a used Kawi Ninja 250 for its engine to use in our hybrid car. But before we pulled the engine out we had a knee dragging competition with it Lol.

 

Small light bikes are a boatload of fun.

I had the opportunity recently to ride as passenger on a friend's 2009 Yamaha XJR1300. Kickstarted my interest in motorcycles rapidly, can't wait to get one of my own now. :D

 

What's your preference in riding style?

So far, just standard. Not a fan of Cruisers etc. Though ultimately, I'll have to wait and see - all I have to judge from is how it looks and how comfortable I think I'd find it, for all I know the reality of riding whichever different styles of bikes could be quite different from my expectations. :)

New or used? I have a few recommendations floating around in my head already. Does Scotland have a learner's system similar to the UK?

Unless I can find an amazing deal for new, I'll most likely be going used. It'll be my first bike, and I'm sure it'll suffer its fair share of bumps and scratches. :D

 

Yeah, Scotland's system is the same one used in the UK. I can go for an A2 license so I can get a bike of up to 35kW power output - though I can also get one that's more powerful and just get a limiter on it, so long as it's not more than twice the 35kW limit.

Slooowly saving up for the risk training course. (I don't really have much to put aside each month).. 

Hoping to get my license this summer.

All i need is that course and the first risk training course which is cheaper. Then i can take the test.

That makes this significantly harder since I'm not sure what bikes are available in that country and laws

So bikes like these are designed for the European and Asian markets where there are restrictions on bike lisencing (Europe) and taxing (Asia). So I have to say it suprises me that these small capacity bikes like this and the Ninja 300 are so popular in the USA where there is no restriction, especially given that when it comes to cars the US seems to be all about having has big an engine as possible.

Unfortunately Australia also has restrictions when it comes to what we can ride on our L's and P's

Saying popular is a huge overstatement. Most people I know and in general that ride, start on 600s. It's a popular learners bike for sure. With the launch of the R3 and more smaller displacement bikes coming in the near future I might just downgrade... 414lbs of the S3R felt fun and light I can't imagine 370lbs wet weight

'Limiter'

 

I turn 19 next year and my Bandit 600 won't have a limiter in it ;)

What's the bhp of the bandit without the restriction?
