Hi guys I'm gonna move over to Vancouver for my studies in a couple of months time, and am considering getting a bike, however I have some queries bout riding in vancouver.
Firstly, I was told by my sis(who is already studying there) that it rains alot in vancouver so having a bike as a mode of transport will not be very useful. Is this really the case? Throughout the year, how long is the riding season? In where i come from, riding season is all the time as the weather is simple, either rain or shine.
2ndly I have been riding for around for more than a year, do I still have to go through the minimum 1 year learner's stage before i can take my road test?
Also, it appears that I can immediately purchase a bike and use it for my learner's stage. Is there a limit to how many CC the bike has to be during learner's stage? and for the road test, do i use that same bike?
Lastly, How much is the insurance premium for a owning a sportsbike in the 600 cc range?
Hope you guys can help me out with these queries. Thanks alot!
