    Default Beginner bike (read first bike)

    Hi guys, looking to get a bike that will initially be a now and again ride a few blocks. No I don't want a Vespa haha.

    Keen for something not too big, Streety, ll etc. Im open to a lot of things, for example I was thick not to jump onto a R nine T that was a good price, KTM 690 that was also selling for a good price.

    Open to the older bikes too from 70s, 80s.

    JohnJM you should look at the Honda NC750 if the KTM 690 is the size bike you're looking for.
    depends what you want the bike for?

    I don't want to rule out a commute in the future if it happens, something of good value which seems scarce nowadays.

    All bikes these days are nice rides, even Harleys

    I suggest you make an outing to a bike shop like Fire It Up where you can test ride a variety of different bikes. You will soon enough discover what kind of bike will make you happy.

    The features I considered in my choice of bike after all the variety of bikes I took for test rides came down to simply this: (1) degree of pleasure, fun and enjoyment to ride it (2) performance without compromising too much on fuel consumption (3) how well the make and model of the bike is supported locally when it comes to services etc. (4) how useful the bike is when it comes to commuting and the occasional road trips.
