The only thing i've actually ridden up to now is a Yamaha YBR125:


They're brilliant starter bikes from what i've read, and my girls stepdad swears by them.
I also got 75mph downhill out of it haha.

Does look very similar! How much did that cost? Cause i need something cheap just to get me on the road. Getting one off the old in law but he's on a cruise and don't get back for weeks.

Then there's the gear as well £££'s!

I got that 2nd hand for £900 + £430 insurance (Piss take in N.Ireland )

I would reccomed a more popular make for a 125, most of the parts for mine are only availabe at the place the bike was bought and some of the prices are a joke

Haha that's cool you'd get crucified over here. And mopeds never interested me, they're too.....slow.
My girlfriend had an Aprilia RS50, basically a moped with racing trim - by all accounts a dangerous bike to ride.

EDIT: £450 for insurance? Fully comp, the day i passed my CBT, i was quoted £94...which includes oversees riding and low excess.

That's badass!

Something like this Honda Rebel 125cc

For when I'm ready to learn, I reckon. It'll have to wait a month or 3 now, though.

Rar! I've never checked out a Rebel....but that actually looks quite phat..might have to look into them myself at that price, especially as i only want something for the next 3/4 months before i do the new HARD HELLISH CONFUSING test.

I'm gonna book my practical exam tommorow morning. Theory was passed last week.

Trying to work out what large bike I want to go to

I quite like the look of the Suzuki GSR600 K8

I'd be so happy with that, it's an excellent first 'proper' bike.

I'm not as worried about my test, cause there's an official DSA release that shows you what it's all about, and it's handy (as a lot of instructors still don't know what it's all about)...can be found on youtube.

I think a lot of the manoeuvers can be practiced somewhere quiet in your neighbourhood.

Aye, I'm tempted to bid on that rebel right now. But I think it'd be a bad idea!

It'll have to wait a bit

As for your cheap as hell insurance, it's probably because you're over 20 and learnt to drive already

Hmm yeah i supposed 5 years of claim free car driving is probably a good thing....


This new test they just brought in - on the first day 4/5 candidates failed, and out of those 2 ate concrete, one breaking his arm....looking forward to this

I just bought my first motorcycle a few weeks ago. Now that school is done I'm going to go get my permit so I can start riding.

This isn't actually my bike, but it is the same model:

I'm English, but live in Canada.

We have a good mix of sports bikes and cruisers in North America, but very few naked street bikes. I was in Spain last year and noticed they have lots of naked bikes and few cruisers or sports bikes, the opposite
