What should I pay attention to when buying Big?

Postby siwy2411 » Tue Jul 17, 2018 8:34 pm

First of all - hi! I am new here, so just few quick words - I live in Poland, and just passed my motorcycle driver's license a week ago. I already have <<some>> biking experience, as I currently own a 125cc bike, which I use to drive around town (and sometimes to make some short trips ~100-150km).
I made up my mind, that I would like to own DR BIG, and after some digging and reading I know I would like to find SR43 version.
I am planing to do most of the repairs and maintenance needed by myself (my lady is already not happy with me spending so much money on a bike, I am not going to push that button more than necessary :P ). Currently I don't have much mechanical experience, but am willing to learn, and since I always liked to tinker around stuff I think that should not be a problem. Even if - I have a friend who lives nearby who has experience with motorcycles and mechanics and is willing to help in exchange for some beers :D .

That brings us to my question from title - "What should I pay attention to when buying Big?". I already found some (possibly) interesting BIGs for sale in my area, but before visiting I would like to ask you what should I look at when checking out BIG? Any specific parts or pieces of bike that tends to break, or simply be neglected, but will be expensive to take care of?
