Hey Rex, need some help, I’m new to bikes in general, I’ve bought a Honda cb, pretty stock, taken off most stock parts, need help with the seat, I’m based in Cardiff, South Wales, ive noticed there’s a bike builder called Andrew Greenland lives in the area, have you got a contact?
I'm trying to get into motorcycles and have been doing my homework on great starter bikes. So far i have narrowed it down to three motorcycles ; honda rebel 250, Suzuki tu250x and the yamaha vstar 250. Could I get an opinion on which one should be my first motorcycle? They all seem like amazing starter motorcycles and I'm having a hard time coming up with a decision. Great blog and aloha from Hawaii.
mmmm….can’t say I’m a massive fan of any of those bikes…in stock form.
They’ll all the do the job of putting a smile on your face, of that there is no doubt.
The Rebel and the V-Star are very similar so if you prefer that style then choose from those. The TU is taller and more suitable for a cafe racer conversion. They are all competent and reliable bikes.
To really put a smile on your face, make sure you customise them and truly make them yours.
