Well I bought my ride in September and after I rode it home from Ballarat I did contemplate, how long could I keep my licence. Well, for me, it was 3 months. The idea of riding around on a race based bike is an entertaining idea but, unfortunately I lacked the throttle control to keep it at the speed limit. The cops were reasonable yesterday. I got done at 48 over the limit and was able to ride home. Anything over 45 gets impounded.. at Preston. Long way from the SE burbs. Despite the searing heat, grog testing, drug testing, I managed to keep my cool.. and it really does pay off in regards to how cops treat you. Six months will be tough without a licence being a truck driver but I guess it's just a kink in the road. My missus wants me to sell the bike but I have convinced her the car is bigger and more expensive. Take it easy on the roads out there guys, because there are thousands of cops ready to catch you and also lecture you. End rant.
