It was a 1-1/2 hr ride from coogee, up the coast to Joondalup (hodges dr). The winds were up and my average speed was about 45kph.
I did my theory test, this is a requirement in order to get a learners permit for a class R-E (<250cc) bike licence, it cost me $19.60 to sit the test and about $69.40 to get the permit after passing the test (which I aced in approx 4 minutes, what a joke). I guess it's more for those people who do not have a car license already... otherwise, it's common knowledge for any current license holder.
Is it de-restricted... lets just say my trip home wasn't 1-1/2 hrs long, and my average speed wasn't anything like my way up...
I needed gloves for both protection from any kind of accident, and the sun. I have stupid looking hands now because of sun burn/tan. I don't yet have proper riding boots or pants, perhaps eventually. Jacket and helmet was my first priority. I reckon 95% of scooter riders I see riding around are in t-shirt, shorts, thongs... you get the idea.
That "service" sure did the trick, I feel like I just got a brand new scooter today... :)
I'm in no rush to get my R-E license, I was really just doing the theory test to kill some time, although have had plans to get it sorted within the next 12 months. So at some point over the next 12 months I will probably get a few lessons and get my actual license. I already have my eye's on either a PX200 or GTS250ie, but not for 12 months or more probably. Heck my LX50 is only 3 weeks old!
