LAMS bike after end of restrictions?

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by AdamR33, Feb 19, 2008.

  1. Hey all,

    So Victoria is finally joining the party with LAMS in July and I was thinking about the extra bikes availible under the scheme.

    My question is to riders in other states who bought a >250cc bike under LAMS, did you end up trading to something bigger/more powerful/more whatever the second your restrictions ended or do a lot of people feel satisfied remaining on a LAMS bike even after restrictions?


  2. Anything with a power to weight ration of 150kw / tonne is going to be a slug. So to answer your question, its a matter of function over performance.
    If your into sports bikes, you will definately upgrade,
    if your into long crusies, you will probably need to upgrade for uphill slopes and comfort.
    Commuting you may be happy.

    Also if you intend to pillion, LAMS bikes will suffer.
  3. The jury's still out, not long to go now and don't need more bike yet (though it'd be nice not to get hauled over on the straight parts of the track).
  4. There's a good thread about that in General Discussion:


    edit: sorry, didn't notice the ">250cc" part at first :oops:
