    you need a mudguard for roadworthy? can I get away with taping something to it for the inspection? haha, Ill get a self adhesive reflector on the license plate that worked on my last bike. Nice one for the heads up I should probably check up on all the little things like that before I put it in and waste money on a fail.

    Fail isn't an issue, they just tell you to go away and fix it - Reinspection doesn't cost anything ;)

    My mate just got his '07 GT650S through rego using an SV650 mudguard. He removed it again once it passed, I can ask if you can borrow it if you want. (I have absolutely no idea if a guard off an '07 model will fit a '10 model)

    I bought my bike with nsw rego and just waited until it expired before I registered in the ACT to avoid the late fee :p. It works though

    Technically you could if you don't get any camera fines because they will go to the previous owner, they'll then go to the registry and tell them it wasn't them and then it probably gets worse for you after that, because you won't know you have a fine and they might just cancel your registration on you for not paying the fine you don't know about. You don't want to know about the fine for riding unregistered. Oh yeah, welcome to Australia.

    Because of how awkward they are being currently with my proof of residence I won't be able to register it for the next month or two anyway, might go into the connect shopfront and see what they say about it. Don't want any expensive fines, noticed your speed cameras as well they're very hidden! in the UK they have to be bright yellow and reflective to give you a chance to slow down! haha Cheers :)

    Think I saw you going to work this morning (I'll check the plate on the way home), it does sound a bit loud. Sounded like a Ducati actually.

    Welcome Clive!! I know this bike well! Love the sound of it! Its been on a couple of coffee runs to Bungendore :ridgy. For a lams bike it holds its own. Much quicker than 250-300cc LAMS getting around. Grats on the purchase, and welcome.

    Cheers Brett! Yeh it has a lovely little grunt to it, Does LAMS mean it's slower than a normal 650 then? I haven't noticed any significant lack of power compared to my old SV650? yeh the previous owner recommended this site - and here i am! :D

    welcome to CR and congrats on your bike, LAMS bikes are not slower as such but there "get up and go" factor when you hit the throttle is reduced, to make it safer for newer riders. once you derestrict the bike it makes a differance, I dont know myself with the GT650 but I do know that once I derestricted my GS500F ( along with a few more mods :biggrin.gif: ) it made a HUGE differance to the bike.

    welcome and hope to see you around

    Well.. im hoping some of you guys might know about this one.. just came home to find a parking ticket on my bike??? my bikes parked on the pavement outside of my flat, however it's completely out of the way of any pedestrian footpath etc.. in the UK this is completely normal and bikes can park pretty much anywhere where they don't inhibit a footpath, $91 dollar fine outside my own home here?? Do i just have to pay it or can I contest? any advice please? :/

    That's the US buddy, but I've checked the road transport act, "ACT motorcycle riders handbook" and http://www.rego.act.gov.au/parking/parkingrules.htm and none of them specify that it would be illegal to park there.. other bikes in the apartment block park there and I was told my by letting agent that I can park my bike there..

    You can't park on the footpath etc here. See what the wording of the ticket was.

    I do recall a discussion about being able to park anywhere that's privately-owned land (which makes sense) and that covers under the eaves of buildings. We're you parked on what is likely private, or public...

    Definitely write a letter. I got waived a $50 once for failing to vote in a local election once.. (there were many reasons why I didn't) and it was never about the money it was the principle. I always say if you don't ask you won't know, so at least ask for it to be waived with a lovely letter explaining why... those agencies love receiving letters.. :)

    Yeah write aletter. i got out of a parking ticket copped at manuka oval just near the school. But you need to explain the situation and add a couple of diagrams/ photos to support your case.....

    I've written quite a big email explaining the situation, oh and when I moved my bike it turns out I had 3 other parking tickets stuffed in the framework out of sight.. Surley this isn't allowed?? I walk past it every day coming in and out of my house and didn't spot these ones but it didn't stop them piling them up :/, should find out more tomorrow - Good idea about the photographs I will take some tomorrow to help the case.
