Ok. Heres the deal. I learnt to ride a motorbike on a farm when i was about 8. Since then spent a small amount of time riding 250 trailies. I'm booked in on the 17 of December to do the advanced METAL course in the NT while i am working up there which will remove my engine restriction from my license. I reside in Melbourne but still hold an NT license. I haven't spent any time road riding since i got my restricted license. Haven't had the chance. I did my licensing on an SR250 which i found pretty gutless. The thing is i was looking at getting a 250 in Darwin to spin around on this summer and get my skills up. But i will probably have my engine restriction off soon so i am reconsidering that option. Ideally wouldn't mind borrowing someones bike up there but i don't know anyone willing. The thing is should i just get the engine restriction off and go straight too a big bike in Melbourne. I will only be doing highway riding, very limited city riding. I don't know if its worth having a 250 for such a short time. I have been driving for over 6 years now, and i am a confident driver. I know its a different thing on a bike. Any advice? The big bike i'm thinking of getting is a 90's model VFR750. Will this be such a problem. I can handle an XR250 on dirt easily enough, would road riding on a 250 be any benefit? Sorry for the long post but any advice will be appreciated. Cheers.
