Hi all. Anyone had any experience with your state transport and the new L.A.M.S. restrictions yet? Here's an interesting tale. Recently passed my level 2 test, being an older rider returning to bikes. Having passed, my only restriction is a 250cc limit for a year. For many reasons I decided to to apply to get this restriction lifted. Applied, waited, then they sent me the "correct" form so started the process again. Today I get a call from Transport asking me to nominate the EXACT bike from the L.A.M.S. list I want an exemption for. ( I had put a couple of bikes from the list on the form). I stated I wasn't sure as I was on a 250 limit, and as such I could not legally test ride either. They then offered me a "test ride exemption", valid for two months. At that point I then must nominate a specific bike that they would then list on the back of my licence and I must stick to. When I asked what would happen if I wanted to change bikes or even test ride another, they said I had to re-apply and of course pay the new fee for doing so! What a rip! Just another bite out of us bikers wallets. What would be the reaction if all P plate car drivers were restricted to a handful of car choices? Where's the equality? I understand they don't want new riders on R1's and the like, but surely we can be allowed to ride any L.A.M.S. bike without first letting them know? Don't put up with this shit! Write a letter to your member of parliament, write to newspapers, ask why? 'cos sooner or later its going to happen in other states or something like it. Any thoughts? Cheers, Daz.
