It's for Your Own Good!

After another summer of squid hamburger all over wester Canada's roads, I have come to think that we (Canada at least) should adopt a Japanese type licensing model. By this, I mean that new riders should be restricted to small displacement machines for a certain length of time. I mean, come on, if you have the cash you can buy ANYTHING in the showroom and ride it home with zero road experience, just a writen test which a monkey (or most Torontonians) could pass. Note that this is coming from a rider in BC, I'm not sure of the regs in other provinces, but I'm pretty sure they are similar.
It's absolutelyinsane. Do newbs really need a 175mph 'learner'? The dealerships should know better IMHO.
