Bike options for 17yo commuter w/ A1 license

I'm 17, almost 18, and currently have my CBT and ride a YZF R125. I work in London but live outside of London and wish to commute on the motorway once I've passed my A1 license. I'm wondering whether there is a better bike option for me to use to commute in to London, perhaps a bigger CC but restricted output and power, because I hear from people that at my age they have bigger restricted bikes, but when I look up the law on the internet it's hard to find where it states that that is legal.Thanks

New Bike

Hi All, I have just passed my A license this week, I used to ride many years ago but never took the test, my age is 53.I took my test on a Honda NC700, nice bike, nice seat height as well. This brings me to my question, I'm looking into buying a bike, Like the Honda cbr600f or 1000. But it's the seat height, how does one decide on the bike, might seem a daft question, or can seat's be lifted up ?The Honda was nice but just need a bit more power.Has anyone got any alternatives ideas.

'saki er-6f... good first?

Hi All!Finally (about 2 years after getting rid of the trusty old NSR) got round to doing my Cat A2! *woop*I'm looking for some advice on a good first bike... I love the look of Ninjas and GSXRs, but I don't even need to quote the insurance to know its unfeasible just now  I've been told that a Kawasaki ER-6f is a good way to go until I've got a few years experience and my full unrestricted license (I'm only 21 ) Any thoughts on this? I'm looking to get it on finance and ...

where to start?

Hi to you allRight, here goes, I really need some advice on where to start bike wise. I'm heading towards 40  and I have never ridden on the road. I used to have dirt bikes when I was younger but that's it. So, do I just start off with a 50cc, see whether I like riding, then progress to CBT and full licence, or should I miss the 50cc out? I'm a bit concerned that at 6'1 I'll look a bit of a Humpty on a 50! Money is tight so looking at the best ...
