Not sure what bike that was?
The CBR600 has 14k on it. (The one I bought)
Nice bike mate but why wait till Summer ? You get some nice crispy dry days this time of the year & the roads are empty. Just give the bike a rinse down when you get back.
It's very tempting. I'm just a bit paranoid with this time of year. On the way to the test centre I nearly lost it, the back end slipped out. That was in the wet right enough.
I'm 23 at the end of December. My insurance drops around £250. So I'll see how it goes and I may well end up insuring it then.
I still need to buy the gear. All I've got is a pair of gloves haha.
Just take your time buddy no rush the experience will do good for your biking carer and will pay off when needed the most.
Some nice days in the winter just a little nippy
I noticed that learning in November, the wind cuts your throat like a knife! Had to buy one of those neck warmers.
I wear a neck tube all year round.
You only get hit in the throat by a 90mph bumblebee once to make it worth while...
F**k they hurt
If your face/skin starts drying up, moisturize, or better yet - invest in a full-face balaclava.
I've also insured my bike (bought it in october) ridden it for about 10-15hrs total, but can't see myself getting it out again until next year with all this crappy weather.
I had a bee hit me in the leg while I was doing 70ish and that was a fair whack. It must feel like a full-on punch at 90.
I wish I could get that long on my new one this year
All ive done is pay £184 extra for my insurance until march, and it wont get used most likely until then,again due to weather
