    Welington is tricky. If you live in the hill suburbs a dirt bike is ideal. If you live out the Hutt somewhere a road bike would be betterer.

    As for the Burgman, that could be the go for people with an open mind. Mat Oxley was a TT winner and lap record holder, and a former GP rider and endurance racer. Last I read he was riding a Yamaha T Max scooter.

    Can't beat a cheap n cheery classic. I have my eye on one of these Suzuki TS90's. It's got a screaming 10 hp(11 on a cold morning) and good for 100-115kmh flat out. Cheap classic rego and definitely a shit load of fun for the daily commute.

    my c50 boulevard is pretty OK at commuting - little bit wide, but still can filter enough. The saddle bags are great - no need for a backpack.
    Then I could get a Kb Tshirt, move to Timaru and become a full time crossdressing faggot

    I've just bought a 2016 GSX-S1000 which is going to be my daily transport for now.

    Hmm, from the pictures; No gloves, shit helmet, no armour, knobbly tyres on the street, great in the rain at 50kph. Let's hope these stupid fucks don't get classed as motorcycle accidents.

    Is this any different to the multitude of scooter riders you see every day?

    You know? In the Hutt we dont see many scrooters.
    Was like the Hardley rider yesterday lunchtime wearing 'barbeque wear,' belly bouncing off down the street turning at intersection both feet out.

    Yeah bro. Serious biker..

    I thought HDs were referred to as scooters?
