    Getting to those off the beaten track places (an excuse for a bike!)

    OK, this is from left field, very out of focus.

    I'm thinking of getting a trail bike and know of a couple of togs around here that ride around a take photos so thought I'd ask here.

    After off road but able to be road registered, probably something 400-450cc and easy to ride (I'm new to bikes!) and around $3-4k. Any thoughts or good resources out there?

    I am not sure if the laws have changed Mick but 250cc was all a learner could ride
    Personally I would go for Honda XR or a Yamaha TTR

    Hi Duane, yes I thought that too, but in Victoria there is a learner approved bike list (here) that has plenty of bikes up to 600cc. Was a surprise to me too

    250 trail bikes can be a bit of a pain if you have to cover much distance at highway speeds, something like a DRZ 400 suzuki is a good mid sized allrounder and still very capable off road.
