  1. Got my bike licence over the weekend and was planning to go bike shopping this saturday but I just CANNOT WAIT to get a motorbike! So I got it today (Tuesday :p)
    Riding the scooter to work just ain't the same. Also, I wanted to keep practising what I have learnt so that I would not have unlearnt what I picked up from the Qride course (which was superb as usual!).

    This one has got LED taillights and indicators, and a stainless after-market exhaust (sounds awesome =D>) It has done 18,000 kms. These are stock photos from the ad.

    It was listed as $4990 but plus on roads worked out to be $5200. I got the one year warranty because there is no statutory warranty on used bikes in Queensland. It is the same as a factory warranty, about $600 for one year, you can get up to 3 years at higher cost of course.

    You can get ones with a lot more ks (50 - 80 thousand) and older models still in the 3500 mark, so I reckon spend a bit more and get a reliable good second hand one. It is in good nick this one.

  9. Remus can? Public bath house?
  10. Nice bike. Congrats!
  11. good choice :)
  12. Much better option than the scooter. Well done!
