So… I’m thinking of getting something different. I have a budget of around 2k and I’m confused by the choices.
I’ve always ridden things like my Hornet, CBR600F, Bandit, etc. I’d like to stay with something similar.
I’m confused about mileage and age. I’ve looked at older bikes with low(ish) mileage and in some cases they can be a bit ‘rotten’, just on the age. Newer bikes with high mileage often have wrecked suspension and brakes.
I won’t have huge sums of money to spend on doing it up if I go near my 2k budget, but if I get something slightly cheaper, I can put some money into fixing / upgrading bits.
I don’t have a garage to work in, so I would need something I can get someone else to do difficult / time consuming bits in.
Well, the decision is made. I have a 2004 Honda CBR sitting on my drive way. It’s a cat d insurance claim, but most of the original damage has been repaired and it rides really well. Got it for a really good rate, and I’m chuffed as chuffed can be.
