Looking for advice from all of my all year riders out here on a bike choice
Hope everyone’s doing well. So basically I had a pretty bad crash a few weeks ago, car cut across me and a good aul T-Bone sent me flying over the bonnet. Very, very blessed in the way I hit that I basically had no major injury, just the usual bangs and bruises, whiplash, tissue damage… Anyway enough of that, my bike that was taken out was a GN125, and has been written off. Am being compensated for it, but am torn between using the money to get another brand new GN125 (or other 125 for that matter) or to add a bit more on top to start moving up in the world. I’m on an A2 full license, and so far the one bike that seems to be within my budget are around 07 Honda CBF500s. My question really is, buy the GN or other 125 that I’m used to and aren’t expensive without adding much, or shell out a bit more on a 10 year old CBF? The whole brand new vs 10-11 year old thing is giving me slight discomfort, combined with the fact that the CBFs I’ve found so far have 50,000 Kms+ on them (doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with them at all in fairness but I just don’t have much experience in the used market at all really), but then again I am getting quite sick and tired with the whole 125 in general, since I’ve been on it literally EVERYDAY for 1.5 yrs now and want a change. What do yall think? Any ideas appreciated. Ride Safe!
