hi everyone, as mentioned in my welcome post, i've just come back to aus after a few years away - and a few years on a mid 90's harley - and need (want) to get back on the bike again. Unfortunately, I have to go through the LAMS stuff to do so legally. I'm weighing up the 2 ends of the spectrum at the moment - sport/supersport style, or cruiser style. If i go the Sport style, i'm thinking something as light as possible, and as close the LAMS (WA if that helps, don't know the other states regs) limit as possible, i'm thinking Ninja 600 or maybe GSX650 (or similar). The other option, the cruiser, is a style i'm used, only with about half the grunt i'm used too. I like the generally larger size of cruisers, and the relaxed position, but thinking a light weight sport bike might be fun for a while. Use will be primarily commuting, although i wont call a 10/15 minute ride on anything strenuous, but will be my daily form of transport, so would include freeways, and possible long weekend trips 2/3hr plus rides. So far, trying before buying has been a tough ask. even though i have a few years experience on vastly more powerful machines, because i'm technically LAMS restricted (and only just recently passed the test for it) most places and people aren't allowing it. look forward to your opinions with interest.
