Hey guys, been lurking on this forum for over a year now (after a trip to paris and seeing all the tasty street motards there)
This summer will be the time for me to get mc license and thus a motard/motard-esque bike.
Problem being, I'll need it to be cheap, reliable and easy...so no yearly rebuilds, no kickstarters etc.
Max $5000 all in.
It'll be used for play, commuting and the rare short hwy ride.
Bikes such as the xt225, ttr125le etc. Would these bikes cut it? or would they simply result in me being outrun and run-over by the first boob in a dodge caravan.
Anyone know anything about honda xlr250r? jpgreybike dot com imports them from japan..no equivalent model in north america?
I realize they're not cutting edge bikes, but I need it to be reliable and cheap while i get the hang of it and buy meself a proper sm in a few years.
Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
