    New bikes... sigh...

    New bikes have engineering built in to..."make them safer to ride "

    Are they ? yep..safe as .. sitting in the driveway...... take 'em out on the street and that's a whole different story.

    That's when you limits have to meet your expectations.

    I not a good rider I'm still learning.. my expectations don't exceed my limits.

    But I know and understand both of them.

      My take is that people are getting pissed they have to wait so looooong for their cager license because of lack of assessors, removing m/c tests is just a way to free up spots rather then increase assessors.

      I love this comment on stalk book
      No way they make to much money out of people who do something wrong and have re book the ride tests

      If they cant pass a simple test they shouldn't be given a license cager or bike.

        Sounds wrong to me or have they changed the requirements for RE licences as well for experienced drivers?

        Last I checked (yesterday) there was still a requirement for a new RE rider to get a learners and then pass the Practical exam.
        That's very similar to me this year, had my car licence for 12 years. Went through the learner process for RE, as soon as I passed the RE test, I had full RE licence, no P Plates or anything for that class. So I was riding around as a complete novice but nothing to let other road users know that was inexperienced for that class of vehicle.

        I honestly thing there needs to be some sort of 'new to class' plate, to learn other road users that you're an experienced road user but inexperienced to the class of vehicle they are using.

          P-Plates are different, they are only for your first 2 years of being on the road period.

          If your first license was a motorcycle and 5 years later you decide you want a car license you also won't need to display p-plates.

            I know this will be controversial in this day and age, but maybe people should take responsibility for their own actions and ride within their own limitations regardless of what a little plastic card says. Just because you can go buy a 1.3 litre motorcycle doesn't mean you should be riding one.

              Fuck off cleanshirt, you can't tell me what to do. My bike's a 1300, and that's the way I likes it ! I don't need no man telling me to ride some gutless LAMS piece of shit
              Rest in Peace

                We winge about Government nannying people, but as soon as they give people a little more responsibility you all start bitching.

                  I've got a cage license doesn't mean I drive around in a blown 6 litre, likewise I've got my big license and have had for years, no one ever forced me on a bike that I didn't feel comfortable with, for once the government might be letting people take responsibility for themselves, never know it might catch on

                          In south Australia a similar scheme has been in place for many many years although it was 12 months, I doubt the change will have little impact the people that don't get the bigger license after 12 months will be either cautious or too poor to immediately run out and buy the biggest baddest thing available. People affected by this scheme have also had the option to run around on a 500cc plus LAMS bike so they won't have necessarily come from a sub 200 cc 15hp machine.

                          Relatively inexperienced riders on a new more powerful bike will be high risk they always have been not much has changed IMO, so will people who think they know what they are doing. A couple of O turns and indicating when the law requires for 30minutes one time isn't going to have a big impact on things.

                            makes sense, the R test is a fucking joke any way, what is the point of R test in town no faster than 60
