Hey all, I've been riding for 2 months and I've logged about 2500kms of commuting and short (<100km) trips. Already, I feel restrained by the 250cc and would love the extra capacity... I'm on my (NSW) L's and recently have been allowed the privilege of switching from a NSW to a QLD licence - apparently if I upgrade my NSW L's to P's and then change states this would allow me to move from my NSW P's to a full QLD licence (as banana benders have no bike P's). So having found an interesting way of going to my full licence after as little as 3 months of L's, the question I want to pose to you is this: Do you think it's too soon to go the full bit? (I'm looking at something like the VFR800Fi as opposed to CBR/YZF/NINJA... ) I'm no racer or speed freak but I also understand that I have sooo much to learn. I'd love a comfortable bike for mid distance hauls (~400km) that doest feel like it's going to sh!t itself or rattle off the mirrors when I give it gas... Please don't say that I'm only as dangerous as my right wrist - I'd be more interested in hearing whether there are other beginner mistakes that are magnified by riding a stable of melbourne cup winners (or maybe harold park trots winners in the case of the VFR) as opposed to the pony club ride I'm on now. Cheers!
