Hi everyone, I stupidly let my bike license expire about 20 years ago and I've recently decided that I'd like to get back onto a bike. So, I've completed the pre-learners course and now just have to do the theory to get my L's. My dilemma is that in NSW I'm classed as a 'mature' learner so go straight onto a unrestricted licence once I pass the provisional test. So really only need a LAMS approved bike to get my road craft back up to speed and to do the provisional test. The CB250 type of bike just doesn't appeal and frankly anything that fits into the LAMS parameters appears to be overpriced and for a few grand more I can buy something much more interesting, so came up with the idea of just getting a cheap postie bike to do the test on. I've now been advised by my lovely wife that a scooter would be much more suitable and she tells me if I buy one she might get her bike license once I'm done with it, which could be a good thing long term. I've always looked at scooters as not the best handling things, but have gone and had a look and it appears that the Aprilia 200 Sportcity range is ok and theres a few around second hand. I'd prefer a Madass 125 but the brochure has mysteriously disappeared so thats off the list. So, whats everyones thoughts on buying a scooter like this for doing the provisional test and ultimately for my wife to learn on? Any other bikes/scooters I should be looking at.
