Hi all,

I'm starting a new job next month and I've decided to go on two wheels as opposed to four.  I can't be bothered with sitting on a train day in, day out - so I've decided the best thing to do would be to pass my CBT test and get a bike.

I'm a total beginner, but I was thinking about getting a second hand 125cc bike (Aprilia, Honda).  Can anyone:
i) Recommend, or know of anyone who would sell such a thing
ii) Advise of the best kind of bike for me (I'd like as much grunt as 125cc can offer... icon_wink.gif )

Any other tips that you think would help would be gratefully received.

Cheers.

well done!

Not surprised you upgraded, it gets sooo much better. icon_wink.gif  :wink:

You will find your commute a fair bit easier as the power does the work for you rather than just hope. ooer

I've no long-term ambitions to own anything too major.  It's purely a way of getting to work and back.  I've been told the Aprilia 125 is nice, and is nippy enough to get away from most things.


Don't you just love it  :D  :wink:

Congratulations Mr. ff

Happens to us all. I never intended more than a 200 benley.  The 350 LC put paid to that.

Well done firefly!

Looks like I have always been stupid  :oops: Jumped off the 250 I took my test on (long time ago!) and jumped onto the Bonnie a mate had previously parked outside the Test Station.  :D
