Hi, I've just been informed that I'm not eligible for the mature rider scheme because I emigrated from the UK in 2004 so haven't had a NSW licence for 5 years. I stupidly thought common sense would have prevailed and my 22 years experience as a car driver would have been taken into account. Anyway, I'm now stuck on restrictions for the next 14 months at least. I bought a 2nd hand CB250 to get through my MOST and was then planning to upgrade; since things have changed do you reckon I should get something like a GS500F now, I find the CB250 fun but a bit small and gutless. I'm 40 years old, 6'1 and 76kg and I'm commuting daily but not using freeways - I did 5k on the F3 as part of my trip back from picking up the bike and it wasn't much fun with trucks overtaking doing 120!
