Double check the laws anyway.. I was talking to a friend of mine back there a while back, he's a bit of a walking encyclopedia of traffic laws, and he was pretty sure they're classed as a "LSM" or Limited Speed Motorcycle, requiring that category tacked on to a driver's license. I might be wrong, they may have updated since then, or he may have been misinformed.

Many designs have space for all sorts of stuff. A small trailer can carry anything else, and you'll barely notice it if it's balanced properly.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
