Migrating soon

Just canvasing for some info. My family and I are migrating early next year to Perth whats the bike sceen like out there and is there much by the way of race tracks that side of the country. We came out a easter and found the dirt track site but couldn't seem to find anything else.

I am bringing my A1P out with me so would like a few track days if possible.

looking forward to our new life in a better country England gone pants now.

I'm not from that side but from vague knowledge, I think Barbagallo is one of the only options over there for track days. Don't quote me on it though.

I wanted melbourne and i thought it was a great coincidence the WSB Moto GP was gonna be down the road but she who has the power didn't like the idea of proper seasons similar to the UK. So off we went to Perth and she loved it decision made.......... On the plus side the Ninja wont get as dirty as it does here......

it's getting shipped with the rest our our house contents so between 6 - 8 weeks 2 months no bike gonna be a killer but we are going to time it so we get to perth the week our kit has cleared customs. then its just a case of sorting it out (registering, new licence, insurance etc) so hopefully not to long after we get there i should be on the road again.

Welcome mate,

1. you will have to put your bike over the pits to register it over here in WA this could be a total pain in the arse! as rear fender needs to be beyound the back tire with a reflector, so thats the tail tidy fucked! new sound levels just came in too but im not sure of the details.

2. You will be able to drive ride on your british license for three months then transfer to WA license, $100 or so.

3. Perth drivers are the worst in the country, so be very carefull out here.

4. there are a few corners out here and the weather is bike friendly 99% of the time.

5. there are speed cameras everywhere and they are sneaky f#####s too, no signs no warning and hiden behind bushes. But they are mostly carried by nissan x-trails so watch out for them.

6. you will get pulled over the police over here are a little high on power.

thats all i can think of off the top of my head, there are plenty of bikes out here though, although prices of second hand ones has just gone through the roof due to summer.

Where you going to be living?

I just moved to Perth 4 months ago from the U.S. Having my stuff shipped over. They told me 4 to 8 weeks.......that was over 16 weeks ago. I think my stuff might be in Quarantine but I'm not even sure about that. Be prepared to wait for your stuff.

Only the helmet champ... In Australia you must have a helmet that meets Australian Standards. Which is on par with DOT and SNELL etc.... But it needs to have the aus cert sticker...

An approved motorcycle helmet Complies with Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1698:2006 Protective Helmets For Vehicle Users, as amended by Amendment No. 1 of 28 September 2007 and Amendment No. 2 of 27 May 2009; or
Is an earlier version of Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1698 or Australian Standard 1698-1988 that was in force at the time of manufacture or importation; and
Has a mark certifying compliance with an above standard.

That will give you greif.
Helmets < Motorcycles < NSW Centre for Road Safety < www.rta.nsw.gov.au

Will give you an overview on helmet requirements.
