Hi Everyone I am probably in the wrong place or going over something which has been gone over before (If I am please point me in the right direction) So I have been looking into What I would need and what gear would be enough to get me started as well as hidden expenses to run past the minister of finance before I get a bike. So as far as I can figure out I can expect the following gear at a minimum. Shark S600 Matte Black Helmet $249.95 Dririder Air-Ride 3 Black/Grey Jacket $199.95 Dririder Classic 2.0 Kevlar Teramid Jean $169.95 Dririder Air Ride 2 Pants $179.95 $179.95 Dririder Hotham Gloves $49.95 Dririder Street 1.0 Waterproof Touring Boots $169.95 Dririder Thunderwear 2 Fluro Rain Jacket $89.95 Dririder Thunderwear 2 Fluro Rain Pants $44.95 Dririder keep warm Pack $99.95 Including 15% off online this comes to $1118.87 I have added up bike associated costs separately Motorcycle $5000 (target price) Transfer fee $216 Insurance $370 with $400 excess Swann insurance Decreases once probation licence etc Based on Honda cb400 Gear- $1,118.87 Grand Total- $6734.87 +Rego $280 annual (can any non metro folks tell me if this is correct?) I have added TAC charge and non metro Low risk postcodes. +Insurance $370 annual I have not included servicing as this will be very much dependent on what bike and age etc as well as how much I ride. Any tips or advice please guys and gals?
