G'day guys, I'm new to the forum , having only just joined (my 1st post in fact), but I really need to ask a question. I recently got my N.S.W Learners permit and am looking for an approved bike to learn on. Trouble is, bikes I keep finding - which I can afford - don't seem to be on the LAMS list, even though the owners did their tests on the same bikes. Today, I looked at 2 different old Hondas - a VF400F (1983), and a CD250U (1990). Neither on the LAMS list but both apparently have been used for learning. What is the go ? I vaguely remember seeing somewhere that if the Rego sticker says ?LAMS approved, then it's all OK. Any help is greatly appreciated as one of the bikes needs to be bought this weekend. I rang the RTA the other day but all they said was "The list is the list", and didn't sound like they knew much about bikes. Thanks in advance. Peter Campbelltown.
