Veradero

They're quite heavy so they're not massively quick. Have a look on www.biketrader.co.uk.


If you drop any faired bike it will cost a lot to repair. Get something scrotty to drop a few times whilst you learn how not to.

Dropping

I dropped my bike recently - it's a supermoto based on an offroader so no damage at all.


I wanted a Ninja. The insurance company wouldn't let me.

If I'd dropped the Ninja, I'd have been.... rather upset. Dropping the ugly DR-Z was just embarrassing as I extracted myself from underneath it. In front of the ex.

yzf

i must admit i have the r 125 and its a lovely little bike, it definately does the job, its comfortable and quick for a 17 yr old. although i have come off before and it costed a bomb to fix, over £3000! (front forks slightly bent) i still reckon its worth the extra. perfect for learning on. just dont come off.:)

yeahh

it does look and sound like it would be good however. i think i would wait till after passing my full test before getting one. as i doubt id be able to insure one on just a cbt lool. any advice on what bike to get for a few months on cbt before taking test?

Yeah Right

cg 125

You could buy a new chinese cg 125 copy for silly money, use it , abuse it, fall off it, take your test on it, then sell it on when you want something bigger ....... it'll cost you less in total than your depreciation on your yzfr and the repair costs are peanuts when you do kiss tarmac during the learning curve.
