I'm currently on holiday down here in New Zealand and was looking at their new rider programme for learners. Thought there might be some interest in their list of approved learner bikes here http://www.nzta.govt.nz/licence/gett...torcycles.html
»You might notice that many are over 250cc and appear quite generous for new riders...like a Duke or two. Might be something for ICBC to consider, if they are not currently doing so. BTW, we shouldn`t complain too much about Cdn vs US bike prices. :Priced one here today that sells for about $29,000 in Canada but sells for $42,000 in NZ. The new top of the line Toyota Land Cruiser comes in at $147,000. No I did not put one zero too many in by mistake.
