How are the roads down there in Aussie? What's the national speed limit if you don't mind me asking?

Is Cadel Evans popular in your country. Just wondering. I raced on his team, but I have no idea how popular cycling is in Australia. Never been there.

Cheers all...by the way, do you have the same noise restrictors on your bikes? I'm assuming they're identical to U.S. bikes, but I wonder if there are any differences at all?

Ride safe and have fun,
W

Welcome and congrats on the new bike, the beemer should be a little more exilarating than the monster

-->There are some spectacular roads for motorcycling here in Australia. And there is also plenty of roads that could be awesome if they re surfaced the road.
110 km/hr or 68 mph in most parts of the country. It use to be unlimited in outback Northern Territory but has been pinned to 130 km/hr

-->Cycling is quite popular here and can be a pain in the ass for motorists and other road users

-->Here is a cut & paste from the EPA stating the rules with db limits in NSW Australia --> For motorcycles built on or after 1 March 1984, and designed or manufactured for use on a road, the level is 94 decibels. The noise level for other motorcycles is 100 decibels.

Pretty sure my Fully Open Austin Racing System is about 115db....lol

thanks for the welcomes.

good to see a few sydney siders on here. I have to admit i dont see many RR's too often, must be looking in the wrong places lol.

in regards to exhausts, is it only a dB limit? What about emissions etc?

I know from playing around with cars for a while, police can require you to take an epa test which can be costly and hard to pass with any fuel/exhaust mods.

Also if you get caught without a cat in a car you could be facing some pretty hefty fines!

Wouldnt mind changing my exhaust as long as noise is all i have to worry about and i can just chuck in a dB killer lol.

Yep, another Sydney 2012 Bimmer rider here. Welcome!

We all should start a ride day for all Sydney S1K group!

I JET - Got that shift spring last week and installed it. I was at Eastern Creek last week to test out the feel.

Is shifting more positive? Yes, but only marginally. 20% improvement, not much to say Wow! Getting to Neutral is definitely more precise from 2 to N and 1 to N.

BTW: I also got the HP rearsets installed, so I think that had more to do with the positive feel due the position of the gear lever.

I would post up pics, but I have no server to put my pictures and link here

Hey guys another almost Sydney rider- I am up near Newcastle. I moved down here a few weeks ago from Brisbane and I was seriously missing the awesome riding roads we had up there. I came down via Thunderbolts Way and was seriously let down with the quality of the road.
Anyway I road the Northern end of the Putty Road down to the cafe- seems like a very good road- just a pity its a journey to get out there.

Anyway if anyone is heading up this way give me a yell and I come along.

Also doing Level Two CSS on the 29 Jan at Eastern Creek- we should get a few riders together for this one.
