Hi Jeff, no tatoos or piercings for me, but since I already have a mustache, I reckon I would only need to grow it a bit bigger and grab a bandana emoticon

Thanks for the offer to help Jeff, I might take you up on it very soon, as am still striggling to understand what exactly I need to get for myself in terms of protective gear and the different pricing for those.

Hi Jalal
I have found MCAS at Auburn to be very good with range and pricing, they have a website
Depending on budget Helmet open face or full face, pants Draggin Jeans or similiar or leather,
good Boots various depends on taste and budget, Jacket either fabric or leather with protective inserts,
gloves good quality leather, this is a basic list you can add items once you have ridden and decide what you need eg rain gear, winter jacket and gloves even heated vests, seats and grips !! Once you have your size
have a look at ebay a lot of gear from o/seas same make but lot cheaper, DONT buy helmet from O/seas needs Australian Design Sticker.
Hope this helps a bit glad to help if you need assistance.
Regards

Re:


Thanks Jeff, yep I know about the helmet and it is also a bad idea to buy 2nd hand one, so it must be new.

Today I found the bike that I think am gonna get, I sat in it and felt really comfortable and it looks like an awesome bike with plenty of good reviews, it is the Suzuki GS500F, it is not a cruiser, but I like the way the handles are placed which make the riding position up-right instead of having to lean forward on the tank to reach the handles.

Not anymore Tony. It's all based on power to weight ratio now. There is a list of approved bikes on the rta website somewhere.

As Todd said, there is a list of LAMS approved bikes and you can now get even some 650s as well. Some bikes have a restrictive pin on the throttle to make them learner legal and the pin can be removed when you get the full license. That way you don't have to keep upgrading bikes.

The bike am after is a very popular learner bike from what I have read.

Jalalski, do some research in respect to changing a LAMS bike in to a full bike.

Down here in Victoria it is illegal to do this.

This is due to the fact that the police cant distinguish between a restricted bike and an unrestricted bike. You are unable to register a derestricted LAMS bike or insure it.

My brother in law has just been stung with this problem, he was advised that he could do it but NO WAY buddy, now he has to sell the LAMS Kawaski Ninja 650 to get a bigger bike.

I have been riding for 25 years and I wholeheartedly encourage you to get out there and feel the wind in you hair, (or across your bald head as in my case) emoticon Have fun and be safe.

God bless,
Clay

Re:


Thanks Clay, the bike am after (GS500F) is on the LAMS list and in NSW any LAMS approved bike can be used for Full License as well.

I had a bit of a set back today at the RTA, I failed the knowledge test emoticon I think I rushed it a bit, so next time I'll be more careful and patient emoticon

And yep, it'll be across my bald batch too. hahahaha emoticon

Re: Another mid-life crisis adventure


I have had my licence since I was 19, ridden quite a few, owned a few. The best being a Honda 305 Dream (the bike Elvis rode in the movie Roustabout) whilst in the USA and Suzuki GSX1100 and about 4 or 5 dirt bikes.

It's been awhile since I've been on one and can honestly say I miss it until I see the "temporary Australians' flying around the roads without a thought for anyone else around them or the people who have to pick them up and scrape them up off the ground sometimes when they come unstuck.

This is my dream bike - Honda Goldwing 1800cc

Only trouble is, I'd have to sell my house to be able to afford one.

Good luck Jalal, it can be the best of experiences but keep an eye out for others cause trust me they invariably won't look out for you.
