    yeah cbr deal is real ,,so would you buy that ??
    Look on facebook at all the smashed up $5000+ cars people are trying to sell for fuck all ... because they had no insurance and can't afford to fix them. Insurance is a waste of money until things turn to shit. THEN ... it's worth every cent. We all know insurance for kid's your age IS expensive ... but insurance (even 3rd party) pays for the things YOU hit with your vehicle.

    Good luck with that ...


    The difference between the two bikes are ... On one you get a bike.

    On the other ... you get a bike ... and can get GOOD quality riding courses AND/OR good riding gear for the same money.

    With either bike ... you'll be looking for a bigger bike within 12 months.

    There's a fuckload of expierence on this forum, both life expierence & riding expierence. You would do well to heed some of it, rather than get your nose out of joint about it.

    No... it's called "reality check"...

    It's not if you can afford the purchase price of the bike/car, it's can afford the "running costs"...

    and for bikes running costs are greater than a car, apart from may be the cost of fuel...

    * licence [registration] is higher than a car
    * oil and filter changes needed more often than a car
    * tyres don't last as long as car tyres and cost more - two bike tyres could cost you over $600
    * servicing of chains/sprockets


    Damn! I need to learn to type faster...

    My FJ1200 costs me more per km than the 3 litre quad cam toyota I had ...

    Petrol is the cheap part ...

    Look mate, just buy whichever bike you want & don't get insurance while you still know everything.
    Don't waste people's time asking for advice until you extract your head from your arse.
