Hi, I got my L's in Jan last year. Unfortunately time with work and school flew by for me to buy a bike in winter (when less people are riding) and so I am stuck, with my L's running out in early April and looking for a bike. I really cant afford more than $2K and can't find any LAMS for less than that that I'm comfortable with. Worst still I'v enot been able to go to HART for paying for practice sessions as my car died a few days after I got my L's and one needs a set of wheels to go bike shopping and to get to Tullamarine. I would prefer not to retake the L test as I already had to get it on second go due to nerves, but I also need road experience and practice so I can hopefully get my P's before my L's expires. At this point I'm looking at postie bikes as it seems to be the only thing out there (or scooters and I really don't want to get a scooter). I've seen them on ebay but someone told me they have auctions. What is the deal with postie bikes? I saw on the Honda website something about now you can register them? I did do a bit of the ole Elizabeth St walk but Spot on scares me and seems dodgy and the other place I went to didn't have anything but a 1980 Suzuki gsx 250 for $2500 and that is really stretching it as I still need to buy the riding gear and helmet. I'm in Vic.
