Hi all. I've had my rider's license for 10 years now but only rode during the first 4 years. I stopped when I got into an accident and ended up in hospital. My last bike was a Triumph Daytona 675. Anyway to cut the long story short: moved from Sydney to Canberra in 2012, met my partner, moved in, she wanted a scooter, we bought a scooter and now having loads of fun!!! The dangerous part is I've now started trawling through motorbike sites, specifically after naked bikes within the 600cc range. I want a Ducati Monster 659 but want it derestricted. Anyone know if you can legally buy one without the restriction plate without voiding warranty? By no means am I set on it. It's definitely just above my budget so I'm still open for suggestions. I'm also not too tall at about 170cm so I prefer a seat height below 800mm. My last bike was almost 830, was ok at first, but dreaded riding it in Sydney peak hour traffic. Definitely not in a rush to buy a bike so I'll take my time researching and browsing through forums and websites. Also, partner isn't yet aware that I want a road bike. Yikes!
