    Nice one, I did my CBT on Thursday but I need to get my finger out and get the rest booked and passed now.
    Hopefully once i've done that then it'll be a GSR600 for me.

    Good luck and enjoy, there's nothing like a bike

    Please, please go steady though. From CBT to modern 600 is a helluva a jump and a couple of 'mid life' guys round our way have come off v. badly recently after only being on the road for a few months.

    There really is no substitute for experience and, as we all know, that takes time so enjoy gaining that experience

    yea I know I got to take it steady, saying that took test 20 years ago and failed on a hand signal (so she said) never re took, if I did could had jumped on my bike and off without toching one for 20 years.

    instead getting some good training then after I pass it will be on to the bike+ training.

    As per a lot of mid life bikers it going to be fair weather and a bit of fun, and I cant see the fun off 100mph + overtaking cars on country lanes.

    I quite fancy one of them ^ or a Bandit 12 maybe; it's been well over a year now since I last had a bike to call my own
