To be fair, I have no idea because I don't buy new vehicles like a moron, so you may be right.


Sorry you can't afford to buy new, maybe one day, huh? *pats on head*

I buy new, because it's new. Plus, I tend to replace my daily driver before it needs it's first MOT, so I barely even need to lift the bonnet before I get rid.

When money's not an issue, it's a no-brainer.



Lol, alright buddy! If you actually have money and act like that, you surely didn't earn it.


Oh, I genuinely made my way from nothing, I write (fairly) successful books for a living that pay me enough to buy new. I collect classic cars and bikes, but I do a lot of travel back and forth to London, so I want my long distance main driver to be fast, comfortable, and 100% reliable, hence the reason I buy new, and replace it regularly.

Plus I can claim the tax back as a business expense.

Umm .. what huge bills are you referring to with a second hand bike? Maintenence and repair? someone would be willing to build you a basketcase from the ground up for what one of your monthly payments would be on a new bike.

Anyway .. now that I know you work for the police and are among the highest paid civil servants... I am perfectly happy to let you waste your money as you see fit.

I don't expect that you will come back to tell us about laying down your brand new toy and being stuck paying for it... that's just what inexperienced riders do.

good luck.. try to remember to keep the rubber side down.


I said that I work for the Police...I never said I got paid the same wage as them.

I've just done a 10 hour shift...I've earnt a huge 15 for it. Do you call 19,000 a year a lot? I earn more in my main job in a supermarket.

If your going for something new, at least buy it with your money when you have it. No point trying to get something you can't afford and only being able to "afford" it by going down the loaning route.

Who's to say that 2 months down the line after purchasing it, you even have an income from your job.

Have the cash or at least 50% of it or don't bother.

You came across like a cock from the 2nd post you made in this thread. Now you have admitted to being a 'Special' kind of just confirms it. Now I know you are a little Hitler who gets his kicks pretending to be a policeman and does it for free, I would like to change my recommendation for your first bike. Go for a GSX1300R - you will need it for your ego.

And, for a few pointers - go here:

Aww, like I've never been called a cock or Hitler before. Cute.

Anyway, went for my test ride, it was amazing! So easy and nice to ride. Been approved fiance too. Deposit of 1,495 and monthly payments of 125. 0% interest and I can pay it off early if I want.

The bike is a Yamaha XJ6-F ABS 2012, 1,400 miles and in black. Going back tomorrow to buy it and bring it back.

Didn't you know everyone's got a horror story about bikes? (Even when they kinda haven't)

"My brother's best friend's sister's friend's cousin's husband's daughter's mother's father rode head first into a wood chipper. He was never the same after that. Mainly because he rode headfirst into a wood chipper and no longer had a head."

Its all backwards stats. The only thing going for anti-motorbike debaters is that YES, if you crash on your motorbike, there is a MASSIVE chance that it will be fatal. I agree, we have less protection, we are less visible and we can hit faster speeds. We are subject to the elements and weather conditions never favour us unless its sunny and dry.

But a good rider is more observant, evade hazards faster and judges roads and the drivers better.

If you ride well, you wont be part of the statistics.

That's not neccesarily true, the best rider I know got cleaned out by a lorry. He couldn't do anything about it. Thankfully he got away with it...kind of. Broken back, fractured skull, a few ribs, broken arm, dislocated shoulder, couple of teeth knocked out, couple of broken fingers, some fairly mild internal bleeding, and a bastard of a headache for a few weeks - but still breathing. Did it stop him riding? Did it f**k. He was on a Busa within 12 months.

He knows that just because he was on a bike at the time, it wasn't the bike that got him into trouble, it was the daft bugger driving the lorry. Get hit by a lorry while you're doing anything and you're going to have an injury list just as impressive as that one. And it's very possible to get hit by a lorry while you're doing anything. Those lads don't give a single f**k. Might as well be having some fun just before they try to murder you.

A lorry hitting a car can lead to devastating consequences too. Cars being crushed by trucks can leave drivers stuck, stranded and asphyxiated by the metal frame squashing around them.

this scenario is horrible and im glad your friend survived but freak accidents occur. I dont think youre better off unless youre either in that lorry or driving a tank.

Said it countless times (maybe not on here though!), you can be the safest rider/driver in the world, but all it takes is an idiot in another car, not paying attention to kill you.

I've just booked a BikeSafe course, only 20 and not heard anything bad about it! Only downside is its in August.

You'll save 5 times that on your insurance next time round after passing that. Plus if it's anything like the one I did, they'll teach you that sometimes pinning the throttle is the best way to get you out of a tricky spot. That's something that should be on the test. It'll save your life just as often as an emergency stop will.

Hopefully! Can't believe how expensive it is for insurance, nearly 800 third party fire and theft!

Infact just having one years no claims, my insurance goes from nearly 800 down to just over 300!

You'll save 5 times that on your insurance next time round after passing that. Plus if it's anything like the one I did, they'll teach you that sometimes pinning the throttle is the best way to get you out of a tricky spot. That's something that should be on the test. It'll save your life just as often as an emergency stop will.


Hopefully! Can't believe how expensive it is for insurance, nearly 800 third party fire and theft!

Infact just having one years no claims, my insurance goes from nearly 800 down to just over 300!


Where do you live - Beirut? I insure a Sprint ST 1050 and a 790 Bonnie fully comp for 120 for the pair.

Maybe your bike is so expensive as it is usually ridden by girls and we all know girls are not very good on bikes.
