    Oh, well... horses and water troughs...

    My learner bike was a 1980 model. It didnt matter if it fell over. Shit fell off it, I learnt to put it back on.

    Its called learning, meh. Millennials....

    You could have used the money you saved to get some quality instruction.

    Never judge anything (or anyone) by age. Throughout your entire time riding motorcycles ... you will often be out-ridden by somebody on an older (and often smaller) motorcycle. And probably an older rider. Get used to it ...

    There are motorcycles on the Lam's list that are older than that bike ... that will go faster/suit you better ... for longer than that bike ... for a lot less $$$.
    Sweat wipes off. Road-rash doesn't.

    You can pick 250 hornets up for $2500 if you look. One for sale that kinda money in auckland.

    CBR300 is a bucket of crap on a stick.

    Yerp, trackdays when you think you are shit hot on a litre bike and a guy goes round the outside on a Hyobag 250.

    People will always think the latest is the best. 250 Hornet with 40hp eats anything modern.

    and what will you do when you ride your bike into someone's $20K car and their insurance takes you to court?

    factor in the cost of insurance, even if it's just third-party...
