I know that in posting my comments/ dilemma I will not be getting any hard and fast rule and ultimately it will be up to me, but here goes... I am 28 male with 6mth old girl (v. cute) and wife. I have done my L permit and am looking at commuting to work via motorcycle - mt Waverley to east melb (so eastern fwy, sth eastern fwy and through suburbs. Looking to purhase 2nd hand 06 vtr250 in really good condition. Can it be done safely? Is about practice, becoming familiar with operation and feel of bike, hazard perception and riding within limits? Comments/ suggestions/ advice and most of all reassurance would be great.
