im considering buying a bike, however i have several dilemmas/issues in mind...so i would really appreciate the input!
im not looking to get anything powerful just yet, as im going to be learner.
at first, i looked into the cbr125.
i was reading all the good reviews at first, but the negative opinions also came with it (i.e. gutless bike, will get bored of it easily..etc.)
then, i decided to look into a 250cc bike. a friend of a friend is selling one, and its a pretty good deal.
SO the dilemma is:
which bike should i get? (I can't get myself to decide once and for all)
the 07 cbr125r is VERY affordable
whereas the 250cc bike is about a thousand dollars out of my budget.
now i can tell that the 250cc bike will still retain its value pretty good if i decide to sell it next year, whereas the 125r, not so well.
the other issue is:
i understand that it IS late in the season already...so the reasonable thing to do is hold off buying a bike until next year? but Im going away next year (during all of the summer months) for 6 months so I would really like to spend time riding a bike for the next 6 months before I go away. So I will most likely sell the bike when that time comes.
i FEEL that the 125r is sufficient for me ... but after seeing my friends bike, its kind of like "wow, this is so much nicer". also, after hearing many people say negative comments about it...im very hestitant on the 125.
SO basicallythe question is, if you were me, which one would you get (just assume I know all the pros and cons of getting both bikes)?????
sorry for the long post, and thanks for taking the time to read.
