Following a change at work our car parking has been taken away so I am due to do my CBT on Friday. I have never ridden before (apart from a 1hr taster) and was brought up on the whole bikes are bad by my parents. While I'm fairly apprehensive I'm also a little bit excited!
I am looking at purchasing a 2nd hand YBR 125 as it will hopefully hold some value if / when I do my DAS and I look to trade it in. I know very little about bikes though so I was hoping to get some handy hints / advice on things I should look for?
The bike I have my eye on is a 2009 model with 4400 miles on the clock, advertised at £1695. It is advertised by a localish classic motorcycle restorer / dealer that have positive reviews on google so I'm hoping I won't come across any nasty surprises.
Most of the bikes on sale from dealers are newer bikes and around the £2k mark, does the bike I'm looking at sound reasonably priced?
Any tips for buying a second hand bike would be greatly appreciated.
