I passed!

  1. Passed my provisional rider's test today! Now, as I am over 30 and have a gold licence, the only restriction I have is no pillion passenger for 12 months, and my own limits!

    It should be noted that my Z650 did the test easily (although it doesn't like long periods of slow riding and idling, which air cooled inline four does??, it got a bit rough during practice, but was fine for the road ride and test). It's size and weight was not a factor, and frankly, I felt comfortable on a bike I knew.
    Another guy on a Spada also easily passed the test.
    GTR 1000 here we come!

    Regards, Andrew.
  2. Congrats, Andrew, ain't it grand being over 30??

    I saw a couple of GTRs on eBay the other night, have you lookd there???
  3. Way to go!

  4. Congrats mate .
  5. Paul,

    I already have a deposit on a GTR, had to buy it, was a bargain!
    It needs some cosmetic work, but that's easy for me. Has a tall screen, and a ventura rack, 1990 model, Only 75K kms too!

    Regards, Andrew.
  6. Fantastic, we'll check the beast out on our next Northern Odyssey. And, of course, pictures please!
  7. Double congratulations to you typhoon

    Well done on the test and the GTR - may you have many happy miles together :cool:
