Hi all, just signed up as I am planning on buying a Fazer 600 as my first big boy bike.
Got a bit of saving up to do yet but really looking forward to getting one and enjoying it.

 Hi, welcome to the mad house. The 600 Fazer's a great choice to save for, it's not only a good starter bike, many of us on here have been riding for years, it's a great bike. 
  Just don't go buying the 1st cheap one you find, there are a lot of real snotters out there and it's easy to get your fingers burnt. It almost always costs more to make a cheap bike good than to buy a good one in the first place. Have you got anyone who knows about bikes who can point you towards a decent one? Good luck with the saving, we all look forward to hearing that you've found one. They're a knowledgeable and patient bunch on here so feel free to ask any questions. Just a word of advice, there's a guy an here who goes by the name Tommyardin, the chances are he'll tell you at some point to buy a silver one... Don't. They're really slow. :lol :lol

Hi Vinny, some great advice there, thanks pal.
I'm an ex Car Mechanic but I know my way around bikes too, so I don't mind a bit of a project if I'm honest!
If i do find one that needs a bit of love i'll start a project thread somewhere for anyone who might be interested.
Thanks everyone for the kind welcome, looking forward to getting a bike and getting stuck in on here  8)

 Sorry,  I just assumed from your first post that you were a biking novice, no offence meant :rolleyes Hope none taken. What I said about Tommy and silver Fazers still stands though :lol :lol

Haha, no worries buddy, none taken at all. Should have mentioned I've been into bikes for years but was never in a position to get my license until recently.
