    I'm just curious as to what the consequences are, if any, of riding a bike that is not on the LAMS (NSW)
    list when im on my P's restrictions.

    clues anyone? imjust tempted by a FZR600, but im gonna try playing it safe (i.e. dream about the bike for
    11mths and THEN get it)

  2. Its all legal until you get caught.

    Then, you are on your own.

    yes. Several. Including a couple of nasty crashes from same, both of
    which avoided being fatals by a whisker. One left the rider in hospital
    for only a week, the other involved serious leg injury.

    you get a summons to court for riding a particular bike without a
    license. How do I know? been there before. I plead guilty and received
    a fine

    Not only will the insurance not cover 1¢ of the damage, you may be deemed
    'at fault' even if the other party was technically at fault. You could hit
    someone that has gone through a red light, but have to cough up - permanent
    disabilties can be bloody expensive when the insurance company leaves you on
    your own.

    Apparently they don't catch that many riders who are over the limit at RBTs.
    Most cases of drink/riding are detected at the ER or from post mortem reports.

    Question is how many they catch compared to how many they test.

    The *random* numbers have gone down heaps in the, what 20 years?,
    they've been doing RBTs. They get higher results when testing people
    leaving pub carparks and such, but they are still testing way way way
    more people than they book.

  9. Isn't the R in RBT the clue?
