You Ask/You Answer: Old or new first bike?

Published: 04 December 2012

I'm putting myself through the new bike test in February, and will be buying a new bike shortly afterwards (I'm not a spoilt rich kid, I've benefitted from some inheritance money).

I'll have to have a sub-47bhp bike, but I can't decide which route to go: should I follow my head and just get a ratty old shonker until I've got some miles under my belt, or should I follow my heart and get a new Z800e, which I can derestrict after two years and get a more longterm benefit from?

Your answer could help. The best will be printed in MCN.
