Hello, I wanted to ask you guys for some advice on what type of bike is better for beginners cause I am really confused. I have seen a lot of YouTubers say that cruisers are great for instilling confidence and all that while some have said that sport bikes or standards are better. I personally, just for aesthetic reasons, like the look of a cruiser but I’m open to suggestions and advice from more knowledgeable individuals. Thanks in advance!

外围体育投注I bought a Triumph from new and it's due for the 10k service. Still within warranty and don't want to trek all the way to Tempe to get it done at the dealer in Sydney.

I have a local workshop that can do the 10k service but I want to check this won't void the warranty?

The warranty card says it must be done at a dealer, but a quick Google says otherwise.

Hey guys, I'm new here. I've never owned a motorcycle in Australia so I don't know what costs need to be accounted for when deciding on this form of transportation. E.g. learners course, licence, annual rego. Lets start on a LAMS Ninja 250/300 (used) valued at say, $4000-5000. If anyone can help a newbie out here! Thanks in advance.

Hey guys,

I'm going to go look at this 1997 honda shadow 600cc.

外围体育投注Its got 90000kms on it which is alot I know but its going super cheap. Before I'd buy it I would get it checked out for sure.

Curious if people have experience with these bikes, issues, pros etc.

What should I look for aside from the obvious like rust etc

6ft 2, solid built and I cannot seem to find a bike that suits me as a beginner. I've looked on facebook and had a sit in a few, but the ones I've been able to try have been 250cc's mostly and just don't fit me either visually or comfortably. I love the naked/cafe racer style (I KNOW, terrible choice especially for anyone over 6ft) but I knows what I likes. I do also love the look of the adventure touring bikes. Other tall folk; Any suggestions for ones to keep an eye out for?

Hello, well, I have been interested in getting a motorcycle ever since I was a little kid. I will be transferring into Australia next year, either enter University of New South Wales and the University of Melbourne and I plan to get myself a motorcycle as a means of transport and for recreation while I am at Australia. I am currently taking classes for a B license in Malaysia (which allows me to ride motorbikes up to 600cc), and I am curious if I need to apply for an international license/rider's permit (as in my country, they only hand that out to people with a competent license, meaning 2 years older) or am I allowed to straight use my local license in Australia?

From what I understand, for Victoria, I may be allowed to use my local license, however, I may need to sit for a test to see my competency level. Thanks for the help.

Oh yeah, putting that aside, any recommendation for a first second-hand bike under 5000$ I was thinking of getting either a Kawasaki Ninja 300, or a Yamaha R3, I heard they are quite similar to each other, but the Ninja 300 is better in the 2015 models and the R3 after 2017 becomes a much more compelling option due to the improved design. I am not exactly sure as I am newbie haha.

Thank you all for your input! I was a bit unsure but your comments helped me make a solid choice. I went for the cheapest thing I could find (that I wanted)

外围体育投注Yamaha R3 $3500 (pretty good deal IMO)

外围体育投注Its a great bike so far, and perfect size for me to start off.

Bonus: Do you have any starting out tips? (Riding, evasive manoeuvres, must have accessories, others?)
