I'm booked to do my Ps (MOST) on Thursday in Sydney, cos Newcastle was booked out. The plan was to ride down Wed, stay the night, take the test on Thurs, then ride home Friday. Yesterday, I was practicing the cones and the u turn, and I wasn't doing that well I must say, when I dropped the bike. Picked it up, woudn't start, we'll cut out a lot of the fiddling and googling that went on here, and cut to the fact that it's going again but leaking oil like a sieve and burning it from the left pipe like a sick motormower. Not a healthy bike. I've left a message with a mobile mechaninc I've used, but with the long weekend, the chance of the guy being able to come on Tues are likely nil. Option two is try to ride it to a local mechanic without it blowing up or something on the way. WIll consider this on Tuesday. Anyway, I suspect the bike is not going to Sydney on Wed. This leaves me with driving and doing the test on a hire bike, or pulling the plug. I will have no chance to reshedule before my Ls expire. I presume I will have to do both the practical and written Ls again. So advice please: Do test on hire bike and likely fail. OR Start all over.
