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.
