getting back in the saddle again

  1. Was riding motorcycles in Vancouver, Canada for about 14 years...then, things happened in life and I moved here to Melbourne,,,,
    Well, I had a class 6 motorcycle licence but, was not allowed to transfer
    it!! And, had to sit a car driving test (questions) which I passed...
    NOW, I have to go through all the motorcycle training again,,,,I dont mind
    at all,,,a refresher .....
    Once you have had a taste of larger motorcycles...750+ how can one
    bring themselves to riding something smaller....eg LAMS....
    I agree 100% with LAMS....
    I started with a RD 350 then, jumped to a 500 then, had 2 diffrent 650s and started working at a motorcycle shop and rode various size motorcycles...then, I bought a V45 Saber.. so, I have alot of respect and knowledge.....
    I have see to many people get their licence and jump on a big bike and the bike over powers them and bad things happen...
    Will pass my trainning courses but, wont ride until I get my full licence...
    I know that I can ride and, will take things easy.....
    any coments....

  2. I think you can get enjoyment out of anything you ride.

    I'd rather be riding a LAMS bike than not riding.

  5. There are quite a few decent LAMS bikes that have come out .. theres an ER6 version, a GSX650F version, a Ninja (650) etc. Have a look at least cause thats a long time not to ride.

  8. Why not get a trailie, which might help relieve the boredom (for you) of riding a smaller bike. Go ride some trails to mix it up a little. What's too small on the road might be plenty big enough on the dirt.
