    I've never seen one with a number plate, and does the rider need a motor bike licence/permit
    In Victoria you must have a Motorbike license or learners permit unless your riding on private property. Your bike must have full registration or recreation reg, which basically only allows you to ride on forest tracks and gravel roads.

    Exactly right Gaz hidden rocks, ruts and tree roots can play havoc.

    And it still hurts when you come off if you have a bit of speed up.

    Leprechaun, pretty much has it covered. Recreation reg it around the $40 per year whch is only good for the tracks, so no built up areas or towns like Jamieson for eg. The Police are right onto this because you aren't covered by TAC if you have an accident. You aren't even supposed to ride between tracks with rec reg either and there is often blitz's on enforcing this.

    I have always had full reg on my bikes so there is no limit on where I can ride it. Rego is over $400 but its a small price to pay and you are covered 100% should you come off on any track or road. I have been pulled over a few times and never had any issues because of the full reg.

    I ride with a few mates with rec reg and it does limit where we can go if I'm riding with them

    Ok I went riding today we covered only 55k's yet it was a hard slog each way. It was a local ride to the Reefton Pub for lunch and back which is a very popular ride down this way. It was a cold start to the ride with the temp at -0.7

    We passed a couple of other groups of bikes and 2 groups of 4wd's. The tracks were pretty much undrivable for 4x4's in sections which is typical of the Warburton area with deep valleys and natural springs running down the tracks. Its not a place we go in the 4be's because of the this. Thats why the bikes are good in that area and there is plenty of options if its unridable.

    I took a few photos on my phone, lets say it will take 2 days to wash my bike and gear.:
    I'll post up some pics shortly. My mate had a helmet camera but it was angled wrong its takes a few rides to get it right.
