Advice for a rookie
« on: December 11, 2013, 03:24:15 pm »
Hi guys

The first bike i bought was a Big Boy TSR 250. I has been a great learning school. I am currently looking for something bigger and obviously
a DS bike. With this comes a natural amount of questions.

All i have learnt about bikes, I have learnt on this forum. GREAT!! Please advise me on the following

I looking for a KTM 640 ( Ideally ) but generally in that range engine capacity of any decent make.

I want to travel weekend distances and occasionally further. Tar and Gravel. I did 200km on my big boy at 90 kph, it was absolutely horrible, but i fully enjoyed every second of that 200km.

Advice on buying a second hand bike as my only form of transportation. What make , millage etc. Something trustworthy with good gravel/2track capabilities.

Thanks Guys, i eagerly await your advice.
