  2. partee, neone, goin, ma, gettin, dun, wanna

    With language like that, I think you will have quite a few years to go yet before you'll be old enough to get your motorcycle learners - even in NSW.

    But if you must know, you will probably be around the $2,500 mark for comprehensive on those sort of bikes. To be anywhere near close to accurate, your best to pick-up the phone and ask them directly.

    As for pre-purchase inspection, https://netrider.net.au/forums/search.php will help you with that.

  4. Ouch @ $2500.

    I was quoted $1300 for a VTR250 which I thought was bad enough.

  5. If you're looking for a cheap bike to register and insure, I recommend against a CBR250RR. My boyfriend just bought one and his costs are double what mine are.

    His comprehensive insurance is about $700 per year with NRMA, based on the fact that he's over 25 and has held a (drivers) licence for 8 years. HRCA quoted $1600 as they seem to take only riding experience, not driving experience into account. So shop around.

    I highly recommend Motorcycle Inspection Services. They helped me buy my first bike a couple of weeks ago. email: Mis@Exemail.com.au phone: 9939 8501 web: http://home.exetel.com.au/mis Cost me $130

    To transfer rego, it's 3% of purchase price. Rego itself for my bike (honda spada) is $90. Not sure about CTP yet as I have not needed to investigate at this stage.

    Hope that helps.

  9. Check out the website dude - it's all explained.

    Basically, they go (with or without you) to the seller's place/dealership and check out the bike there then come back to you with a written report.
