    Fair enough - know any dealerships itching for a quick sale?

    Of course, if you want a test ride they will want to see, and hold on to, your licence. And therein lies a problem.
    I was planning on asking for a fellow full licensed KB to accompany and test ride to be honest.

    But I suppose the dealer would wonder why Im buying but not test riding (probably comes across more dodgy).

    Facts are just things that get in the way of peoples opinions. Don't get bitter and twisted over it ... just expect it and deal with it.

    I got the night rod though a mate - its another one of my toys I keep in the garage.
    Im looking for another toy.

    My daily transport is via my work Ute.
    Keh?

    Does anyone know this friggin TIMMAY?

    Walk into a bike shop with enough cash to buy what you want, they'll sell it to you. They're not responsible for anything that happens, and bike accidents/deaths get no press to worry about.

    No idea why you would make a story up about more than one private seller rejecting you because of experience.

    A workmate, ex Army driver, asked me for my Ulysses membership number once so he could get a discount on a ferry crossing. I promptly told him to fuck off...

    Go get you full m/c license Dean and you are sweet. Do one of the riding courses if you need to to speed the process up.

    I’ll keep chipping away at it myself, do you rate MV Agusta (brutale/dragster series-new)?

    Are they actually decent compared to market equivalents?
    Dream bike since I first started riding.

    1,000cc or 800.

    To be honest uncle I may just stick to track and off road.

    Public roads are just too dangerous these days.
    I loose count on how many deaths I see on the local paper.

    Ive narrowed my shopping list to the following:
    - Harley sportster xr1200
    - MV Agusta Brutale
    - Ducati Diavel

    (Was thinking B-King or GSR but decided no jap bikes)

    Your counting skills must be pretty shit then
