Better off not to do a dodgy on a bike...can be to dangerous.It's best to do it right,and they are often alot cheaper and easier to get roadworthy than a car anyway.What kind of bike is it?and is it your's??...Lukeh!!

Lukeh yeah it's mine, just bought it today. It was used as a farm bike it's whole life, and now I wanna put it on the raod. Suzuki DR 125. Any recommendations. I've seen some roadworthy guys, particularly for cars that are absolute nazis, I just want someone fair, like the guy who does the roadworthies for my cars.

Re: Any Melbournians know a good RWC place for Motorbikes?

Everywhere you go they will check the same thing's...chain and sprocket's,fork seal's,lights and indicators,oil leak's,brakes,tyres,mirror's etc. Unless you have a good friend who does roadworthy test's...you will find most people are strict,as they can easily lose they're tester's license if they are not careful and get caught out.It sound's like you are possibly on a budget,which if so makes it hard.Do you have a Motorcycle License yet?...If not,I highly recommend you go to Armstrong's in Thomastown to get it.I got my License of them and they were very friendly and helpful...and not as harsh as other places such as H.A.R.T or the like.Getting back to your roadworthy question...I would consider getting rid of your bike,and saving up a little for a better bike.I have seen some reasonable 250cc bikes go for between $1,500 and $3,000 for anyone on a budget.All the best...Luke!!

Re: Any Melbournians know a good RWC place for Motorbikes?

Yeah, everyone says that a 125 4 stroke will be underpowered, but it's fine for what I need, and the petrol should be almost free (heh). At least its not worst than driving a scooter. Your right luke I am on a budget which is why I wanna spend as little as possible to get it up to scratch, but as you say, they're strict.

There is nothing wrong with a scooter...and you will even find there are some out there that will go better than your 125 !! When I suggested to sell your bike...I only mean't it in the way that you may end up spending way more than it's worth getting it Registered and Roadworthy.

Re: Any Melbournians know a good RWC place for Motorbikes?

I have seen gay people riding Harley's...so a gaybo can make any bike gay!! Scooter's are good for learner's and a bit of fun.I think you would be ringing the old DR 125's neck trying to get to or maintain 100 KPH? It's okay...I am off my 'P' plates now,so I won't be buying anything like your old clunker,LOL!!
