  1. So I got my bike yay!!!



    Im not confident to ride it much. Just rode it up and down the back street a few times lol I think it will take a little while before im game enough to take it to school. Its very cool though :). I have to say all the safety gear is annoying as its so restrictive, with the pants on what was almost a flat foot is now tippy toeing hard to swing leg over. When im ready there are so many things I can do to it, first would be to put a new pipe on as you can hardly hear it inside a car, so of course for safeties sake...Any advice for a new rider? Like practice drills maybe?

    As I never did an intro post I think Ill do it here to save multi posting. I like music, guitars and motorbikes and now I finally have a bike im very excited. Im also a civil engineering student, (was thinking about switching to mechanical because im so interested in how bikes work but thats prob not a good enough reason). This forum has already provided me a lot of help so thanks a lot everyone!

    Im thinking to either keep this 250 stock or have it as my project/hobby bike, maybe 350 big bore, drop a tooth on the front ( for wheely-ing, in a safe controlled environment only) rejet carb etc. Anyway, thats a long time off happening so wish me luck for just learning to ride it first!! :)

  2. Love the bike. They look amazing. Used them when doing my Learners course and they're really easy to use. Have fun :)

  3. I see you are based in Vic.. melbourne?? if you have saturday mornings free get down to sat morning practice (click for link) to meet a few people and get some practice and advice riding around the cones and other challenges.. :)

    Find someone in your local area to escort you down if you would prefer.. but other than that.. find a nice quiet set of back streets and or a car park to go and get comfortable in.. practice avoiding things and stopping :)

    then move slowly but surely onto bigger and busier roads.. but only at your own pace :)

    OH.. and .. HAVE FUN! (the gear will soften up so dont panic)

  14. Yeah that would be cool! A gang of yards! I live near the hells angles HQ there's room for more gangs in these parts lol

  15. Welcome!!

    Looks like a great first bike!

    As far as whether to keep it stock, or make it a project bike... I would give it a couple of months before deciding...

    I thought my bike would be my only bike, but i got bored of no power before long, and will eventually upgrade.

    The other thing to remember is that LAMS bikes have great re-sale... chances are you'll be able to sell yours and by a bigger one for not much more...

  16. im sure they won't mind, we'd be able to escape from them pretty easy though through footpaths and stuff anyway.

    nice stuff, i nearly bought a gothic explorer at one stage but ended up with a epi les paul standard bass instead.

  18. The thing is I know I will want to stick with a supermotard style bike but I will be way to short for the more powerful ones like the Husqvarnas or Husabergs. e.g my bike is 850mm seat height and the others are like another 100mm dif. I can big bore the KLX to like a 350 I think..but yeah will def think about it before modifying anything to much.:)

  19. WheelsLegman, does this thread remind you of your engineering classes? Stepping in a lecture theatre as one of the few girls in the faculty and having boys go glittery when they see you haha.

    BTW congrats on the bike!
