Shock Horror! I have actually had a win due to the RTA licencing laws. I have just moved from SA to NSW and completed my final rider test just before I left. So I figured I'd still have a year to wait before I could upgrade from my VTR250. Well apparently I qualify for a NSW Gold licence immediately. And if you have a gold licence and are over 30, there are NO restrictions on bike capacity once you pass your final rider test. So moving to NSW has meant the RTA has lifted the CC restriction! Thank you very much. Right, off to the bike shop with a cowering wallet!!!
