just a lesson for the newbies who may get impatient with riding LAMs for 4 years... my younger brother recently got his red P's and replaced his VTR250 with a Z750. His reasoning was that he couldn't be bothered waiting out the LAMs period...his decision, fair enough. he calls me up on saturday just before i head out for a night out with the missus, and tells me he just got picked up by the coppers on the m5 exit onto heathcote road in south western sydney. i'm pretty sure that it's a 110 motorway down to a 60 - 70 residential. anyway, coppers pulled him over for doing 96 in a 60 zone. so they ding him for that. while checking his license they noticed the "provisional" stamped on it. check his bike....uh-oh, no "P" plate displayed and the bigger problem is that there is a big "Z-750" stamped on the side. ding for that too. check the rego...expired in January 2011. ding him for that too. don't think they noticed the fender eliminator, but at this point, they've got him by the balls, so they probably don't care. end result: $1300 in fines and a minimum 3 months suspension on the license. don't know if his license will be affected moreso, but i'm waiting to hear back from him calling the RTA. i'd be surprised if it's less than 6 months moral of the story: don't give them a reason to ding you. poor bastard.
