Queasy Rider

Advantages: easy to ride, cheap to run, comfy about town

Great First bike

Advantages: MPG, Easy Handling
Disadvantages: Slow Speed, Styling

Bought a cheap 1994 reg SR for £475, 26K on the clock. Perfect for learning & gaining confidence for the test. Certainly not the fastest bike you'll ever ride - struggles to mid 50's (but quite pokey at 0 - 25 mph) Nice & comfortable, good for sh ...
