Hello,

I have just purchased an MT350 and will be collecting it next week. It is also my first motorbike, so I will have to ride it with L plates until October! :D

I'm really looking forward to driving it and maybe taking it to some shows! This website seems to have lots of information so it would be great to be a member.

All the best,

Charlie

Welcome to the forum

I don't know the regulations these days but I thought L plates and an MT350 is a no-no

Yes that does appear to be the case... Looks like I will have to wait until October to ride it! :(

Hopefully the wait will make my first ride on it a little bit sweeter? :lol:

Just don't expect a rocket ship ! Your MT is low geared and is designed to cope with a wide range of conditions, the overtaking lane of a motorway isn't one of them. What you will get is lots of smiles per 😊

What more could one hope for! :lol: I was originally hoping for an MT500 but couldn't turn down the 350 after seeing the great condition it is in, and disc brakes are hard to turn down

As long as it takes me to places I haven't explored yet I'm happy :D (Although my dad will be laughing his head off as he rips by me on his GSXR 1000...)

Thanks for the warm welcome

Welcome to the forum Charlie, use the time wisely to go through the bike, checking for loose / missing nuts and bolts. Lubricate moving parts and carry out a full service if you don't know anything about the history. You wont regret your choice, an MT is more fun to ride than a resin rocket. And alot more people will notice it.
Just be careful about riding like a hooligan, your unique ride will be unmistakable....

Thanks for the warm welcome Eric, Jooles, Gary and everyone!

I am now in receipt of my new steed and today completed the on-site modules of my CBT, so now I’m just looking forward to doing my tests and being able to ride it on the road!

I did notice that neither keys supplied with the bike fit into the front pannier box lock, I assume it’s common to have missing keys for these? (I’m not bothered just curious, if someone were that inclined to nick my stuff they’d just take the whole pannier :lol: )
