  12. reply


    Rego - About $368
    Ins - $168 (3rd party only)
    Maint - About $200 (oil, plugs, filters)
    Repairs - None if I can stay on the black stuff, did have to replace the mirrors once and the brake cylinder. $200. (only stack in the 4 yrs I've had the bike)
    Helmet - Paid $200 about 4 yrs ago. Still OK.
    Fuel - Depends. Runs about 18k/litre. Plus Oil additive for valves and Octane boost makes fuel about $125/Litre.

    Again as some have said. The pleasure is what it is about. A trip to somewhere is just an excuse to ride the bike. If it is business I usually take the car because of the crap I have to carry.

    Ask the question, how much would you pay somene to borrow their bike and take it for a 400k run on a fine sunny day through some hills? That is what it is worth.



  13. Orcus, do you mean you pay $20/day for BIKE parking?

    We save heaps on parking, coz we can park on footpath or car park with no cost in Victoria. FREE!!! yeah!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also I save lot of money on the other way too, not enough storage for shopping, even go to shopping centre, you will think about how can I carry it on my bike, then will end up buy nothing. :p

    But on the other hand, spend a lot on bike parts & accessories or gears.
  14. also anyone with scooters out there???
    whats the price gap of keepin a scooter compared to a bike???
  15. Reg Same
    Insurance $267 (RACV pay by the mth)
    Helmet present!
    Servicing not sure as I haven't kept track
    Repairs $13 clutch lever (Sydney ride!) Maybe jail time for dismembering clown who backed over Bond if he doesn't come good with repairs!

    Savings approx the same! Emotional attachment - priceless!
  16. Reg $450
    Insurance $315 full comprehensive (gotta love being 40)
    Helmet $350 (will be forking out shortly)
    Service $650
    New rear Tyre $250
    Petrol $14 a week.
    Total cost excluding tyre and helmet.(1415)+728 for fuel
    Total 2143

    Reg 512
    insurance 480
    service (no idea as the BIL does it)
    petrol $50 a week
    tolls $50 a week
    Total (992) fuel 2600 tolls x48(2400)
    Total $5992

    Savings 3849
    Factor in a helmet and tyres and I'm still saving a shitload.
  17. My '00 subbie wagon services range from $85 for a basic 12,500k to $830 for the 100,000k, a clutch replacement cost me $1180 :shock:

    4 tyres around $500, a wheel alignment involves all 4 wheels, it takes longer to wash :(

    Only advantages... don't have to adjust the chain, tyres last longer and carries a bigger load.

  18. Batteries included? :p
  19. Pure Pleasure has been replaced with the Penguintronic :LOL: :LOL:

    Oops, wrong forum :oops:
  20. Rego around $500
    Insurance - No such animal yet
    Helmet - 450
    Servicing - $850 or so including new rubber all round
    Repairs - Looking for a paint job

    Extra stuff, too hard to keep track of it all, pants about 220 or so is the major expense.
