  2. The process of getting a licence in Australia if you are in your early 20s or younger may be easier on the applicant.

    If you are past your early 20s in the UK, you can still go from zero to a full and unrestricted licence in about a month. No p-plates, no speed restrictions, no namby-pamby stuff.

    Then bikes are cheaper, stamp duty, less likely to get speeding fines, filtering is common blah blah blah........

  3. Although in my day insurance costs and conditions would make most Aussies puke with outrage, forming an effective barrier to many people riding big bikes.
