Greetings from across the ditch. Over here in New Zealand there are major motorcycle law changes being proposed. One part is that our current 250 cc limit for Learners and Restricted (P plate I think you call it) licenses will be scrapped and probably replaced with the NSW approved list (660 cc maximum). No time is given when the law will take effect but it will be sometime between the end of this year and 2010. Over on the KiwiBiker forum we are discussing just how the cops could tell if a bike has been dethrottled / derestricted, and the ability of a bikie to derestrict their bike themselves. I cannot yet post URL's but if you want to have a look at our forum go to: www kiwibiker co nz (put in the dots) What can you tell us about how the [NSW] law works in practice? Did you have a 250 cc limit at one time? Do bikies derestrict their bikes and get away with it? Do cops check if L and P plate bikes are approved? Do most newbies buy big bikes or do some still ride 250 cc and smaller? Thanks!
