I am looking for a cheap commuter since my normal commute with the scooter has been changed from 6kms to +-45kms with mostly highway riding.
While I did do this with the Scooter last year, it indicated that it did not like riding on the redline all the time (Although, slipping the trucks became my new favorite game)....
So, I started looking at bikes online. Under 20k (even the flippen creche hiked up their fees with 25%, so the bike budget keeps shrinking...)
I am concerned about the 400s with regards to parts, and most being a bit on the old side.
I am concerned about the Chinese stuff because you never know when the dealers are going to fly the coop.
But Motomia have been around for a while, and their 250 seems to be the only one capable of (maybe, possibly, hopefully, allegedly) cruising at 100 km/h and at 18 000 too...
Please inundate my thread with your wise and witty comments / advice regarding the bike, or other commuter options.
