THIRD PARTY INSURANCE:
Third Party motorcycle insurance is compulsory by law in Australia and requires a valid motorcycle license for purchase. Just like any motor vehicle, it is important you are covered in case of an accident, where possible damage or injury could occur. Choosing a policy that fits your needs will ensure you are best protected should something go wrong. It does not matter how good of a rider you are, there will always be potential for external factors to affect you on the road which may lead to an accident and / or injury. Always ensure you have adequate cover.
Just remember if you are a Learner rider or on your first year of your RE license you cannot carry a pillion passenger – so if you register your motorbike as a single seater and remove the rear foot rests you can save significant money on your registration with a saving on the compulsory third party premium.

As individuals we all have our own traits, as do motorcycles have distinctive features depending on their purpose or use by the riders. All riders must check on these features to choose the motorcycle that best fits both our needs and personality profiles. Our personality, lifestyle, and physicality will play a significant role in making the right decision when purchasing a motorcycle.
Do your homework,
Pick a motorcycle that fits you,
Understand how and where you will be riding it,
How does the motorcycle feel when riding it and how do you feel when riding it?
Does it align with your budget?
If a beginner, your priority should be to buy a motorcycle you can control.
Remember your training, and always Ride Safe.
