As you probably have seen from my other thread you will know that I got my full unrestricted license yesterday after a year long time wait on my red P's. I am in my early 30s so avoid the three year wait . I have been consistently riding a Ninja 300 and loved the bike. I went through the same dilemma as many p platers before and thought about getting an exhaust and a chip and get some power out of the Ninja. Instead I left it stock and did my time by learning how to become a better rider. Well I tell you what guys it's definitely worth waiting. I was finally able to ride my first unrestricted bike today with my bro and a mate down the Old Pacific hwy. I couldn't believe how confidence inspiring a bigger bike is. It feels planted through most corners and little bumps which used to unsettle my little Ninja 300 were absorbed with no issues by my new bike. Old Pac was wet unfortunately this morning due to recent rains but we still went out and couldn't believe how confident I felt in the wet. Now looking forward to my 4th track day on my new bike next month. I try to get out most weekends to Old Pac. With a new Bub being born in June I only get a few hours to ride on the weekend so no long rides for me for a while. So all everyone on Lams bikes out there, do your time and become a better rider, once you get that first unrestricted bike you will fall in love with motorcycling all over again. And please don't jump to a 1000cc, 600 is PLENTY . Below is a pic of my bike. First one on the right is my 2001 GSXR 600 next to my bros k8 GSXR 600 and my mates 675 Daytona. Bit of a coincidence that we all had black bikes .
