Hi all, I live in Melbourne and originally from China. I've been here for 5 years and planning to get a bike. Little experience in China about 8 years ago, absolutely newbie. However I've always feeling passionate about riding but feel too dangerous to ride in China. The traffic there is way beyond anyone's imagination. So after five years driving in Melbourne I feel like if I'm careful enough I'd survive. Bare with my English if you are still reading. I'm planning to go for the all star motor cycle training's one day course for non-experienced riders. Bikewise I'm thinking maybe a ninja 300. A few questions if anyone could kindly help: 1. Does anyone rides from Melbourne city to the south east side by M1? How long do you think you've saved by riding than driving? 2. For parking your bike, I've seen people squeezes in ignoring the bars. I'm guessing they will not pay the fee that way. Is that legal? How about those car parks with some human handing you tickets before you get in? Can you still squeeze in? If you could, I think it is hilarious. Thanks for your time reading!
