Wife and I did our pre-learners on the weekend and I wasted no time in getting to the RTA yesterday to get my L's. That gave me a big grin, but not as big as when I had placed an order for a new bike in the arvo :grin: We have one of these coming in a few days: Yeah I know its not to everyones taste, and the hyos cop a bit of flak here but we are really excited and will be happy to learn on this. Depending on how things go then the wife may very well stay on this for quite a while, and in a few months when we are ready to hit the roads together I will get another bike for myself. I'll probably attempt my MOST on this one though. I was considering a GV650, but I'm probably leaning more towards an XVS650 now. The idea of being able to unrestrict the hyo seemed appealing but if I understand correctly once that is done (and registered with RTA) then it can not be re-restricted again and made LAMS compliant, which must affect resale. Besides which the yamahas just have that nice classic look and a real sense of quality Theres also been a price jump on the 2010 model hyos (probably because of EFI) so less price advantage now over the yams if I was feeling rich enough for another new bike.
