Cool Motorbike License. QLD

Hi

In the UK you can ride a 125cc without holding a full motorcycle license, but you must retake your CBT every two years.

Does anyone know the max cc in Queensland you can ride, or do they not allow you to ride without a full license?

Cheers

a 50cc scooter :P

You can do a Q-ride course in 2 and a half days to get your full license though.

Thats for a standard learners, but if you get one of them you have to go out with someone, like a car learners.

Most people just do the Q-ride, 2.5 days and you can jump on an R1, no wander the road toll is so high.

A very sexy, stupidly fast, puts a wide grin on your face, Yamaha 1000cc sportsbike that mainly guys ride..except for me as I am a girlie..you may see me posing around the Cairns area in April 2008!!!

Not all R1 riders are idiots either..just the ones that the last poster suggested...those 20 years younger than me and born again riders!!

Good luck with your test.
Liz
