Completely forgot that I had an account on here! I made this thread in 2010, and I'm ashamed it took me until January 2013 to get my bike license! Two days before the new law changes. A month later, I'm a proud owner of a 2012 XJ6 F-ABS in black. I'm annoyed its taken me so long to do it, I love it! I can't wait for the summer though, getting a bit fed up of riding in the cold.
Thanks very much! Definitely going to get lessons and all, only been on a bike once round my mates garden...and that was a twist and go kinda thing. Aim on getting my bike after I've done the test. Need to find somewhere that is cheap and recommended now lol.
Thanks for the reply . I was looking at the 2009 model, as they are in my price range, maybe a little older, depends how much money I have when I pass my DAS...sadly I've got to pay for car insurance on my birthday...so can't do it right away . Not too fussed about top speed and all that, just something for a bit of fun for now. While I'm here...its a lot more confusing getting a license for a bike than a car...I understand that I need to do a CBT and theory before I can take my test, is this included in the DAS course? Or will I need to do that before I start the lessons/test? Thanks.
Hello! I'm hoping to do my DAS when I turn 21 in just over 2 months. Been thinking about it for a while, and finally set my mind on it. The main reason why I want a bike is purely for fun, and maybe to and from work every so often. I don't really know anything about bikes, so have joined a few forums to get some opinions about what would be a good first bike. A few people have said about the XJ6 Diversion being a good start, and a few reviews that I've read have said similar. I also have to be a bit careful with insurance, I did a quote for a Ninja...which came back at £2,300. XJ6 came back at a much nicer £770, which I didn't think was too bad. Is a XJ6 a good choice to go for as a first bike? Is there anything that I need to look out for when buying/viewing? Thanks .
