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!

I think a 125 is easier to ride quick

than a 500, they handle well, the two strokes go well, more insurance friendly (£371 to insure my grandads L-reg GS500e, and £350 to insure a 2003 Aprilia RS 125.)

They are also cheaper to fix after dropping, and go futher on petrol. You can get 70 plus mpg from a RS 125 if you try hard enough.
