my bike is not fast enough!

Had my MH125 for two weeks now.

And to be honest its not quick enough, it still gives me a buzz.

Got used to the power after a week.

 

How do i get a faster machine? am i right in thinking if i take my full test on my 125, i am then restricted to a 33bhp? Or if i take my test on a big bike i can go for anything i want.

My friend who owns the shop said he would pretend its restricted, and just ride anything i want.

Would i be in a world of sh!t if i was caught with a full power bike and it should be 33bhp?

What if i had an accident and they checked my bike?

Dont really want to be dodgy!

 

I want a superduke next, or might go for a 600, maybe a GSXR.

Or would it rip my arms off. I think i should keep my 125 for 6 months and get some experience, tbh i just wish it was 33bhp so i could crack a ton! would it?

would like to do my test on my 125, if i pass wouldnt mind getting a 250 ninja or a DRZ400 and if i keep it for two years i can ride any size bike i want? right?

can u help cause im confused, as usual!

 

thanks

Mate

If you're gonna do your test, then do it on a full sized bike and be done.It'll be as hard or as easy on a 125 as it is on 500 tbh.

You'll have a full license,clean conscience and a fully legal Duke.:smile

Go For

Direct Access, gives you more options once you've passed, you get to ride/acclimatise to a larger machine whilst in the company of an instructor AND it is actually easier to ride than the 125 once you've got the confidence to keep your momentum going at slow speed. Go for it mate:biggrin:

Bigger

I passed by bike test 16months ago and did not know what i wanted, but my friend said dont buy 250cc or 400cc as after a month you be bored with speed, so i got a 750cc bike and i have never rode a bike before until my direct access and you know what within a couple of months bored with this and want a 1000cc now but due to insurance cant get one, so i agree if you pass your test get a big bike dont worry about speed it will only go as fast as you want it to go and you get so used to the speed that it will feel natural after a month but if you get a low cc bike you will regret it after a month.

It depends...

How old are you?

At the moment, if your 17 - 21, you have to pass the test on a 125 that can exceed 62 and a bit mile an hour, and is on a DSA approved list for A2 licence 125's. this gives you a licence to ride up to 33 bhp.

If you are older than 21, then you do DAS on something with more than 47 bhp, usually a 500cc thing. after this, it is whatever you can afford and like.

An important thing to note is that not all 125's are accepted for 33bhp restriction, and some 125's are required to be restricted to 15 bhp, because they develop more. (RS 125, NSR125, TZR125, nearly all two strokes)

Also if the examiner doesn't think it does more than 62 mph, then you get a A1 licence, which entitles you to have no L-plates, and carry passengers.

Do the DAS

Might as well get it over with and in the mean time you've still got the 125 as transport. Better than wishing away 2 years of yer life restricted to 33bhp.
