And, despite moaning about how difficult it is to get into biking these days (and I wonder how many of us would bother if we had to start now) I’m sure that those who learn now will have better bike skills than I had when I passed my test.

And, despite the fact that you won't have a K nor be a Euro, we hope you’ll stay and frustrate us with tales of biking heaven in upside-down NZ  ;D

Good solution all round!

Does that mean there's a 'Motorsports with panniers, sat nav and less than 4000 miles' for sale in the UK now?
You may find some interest on the forum with such a low mileage beast...

Looking at bikes for sale in NZ I found a dealer with a new GSXR 750. They are no longer being sold but they still have some stock. 25% discount so under £8k. (I used to have a GSXR as well as the K1300S until an incident on track). Seems like too much of a good bargain to pass up on the opportunity and won’t have to worry about transporting the BMW.

As a young man who didn't start into the biking world until i was around 21 it was cars from 17, I had to take the part 1 test on a Honda CB-125 twin. Luckily I wasn't that young so i could ride the bike to the test centre and didn't have to do CBT before straddling the powerful beast.
The tricks to keeping it smooth were as already mentioned the rear brake and the other was use 2nd gear and ride the clutch, it make it less jerky.
It was a funny day as two folk turned up on Suzuki RG125's with the turning circle of a cruise liner so they had to borrow a Honda CG125.

I did lose a point on my test as i didn't finish with my front axle between the cones in one of the exercises. Also i had a slight advantage or disadvantage depending on your view of twin exhausts which meant it made no difference which way round i went, the gap to miss the cones was the same

the link for the BMW NZ website  you had in your previous post shows k1600.

should be ok,

But not on the Home heading of Models, I lost interest and bought a Kwacker at that point...
