Suitable first 125 for big guy

Hi, looking at doing my CBT to gain some experience on a 125 before looking at going any further. I am 6'6" and weigh about 19 stone so looking for a bike that would be suitable. Will be using it around the doors and for short journeys in town to gain experience. Any suggestions would be very welcome!

19 stone...125

As you're a teacher I'm assuming you're old enough to go for a 33bhp bike, so if i were you I'd train up for the test and get a bigger bike that'll actually be able to deal with your weight.

No offence but a 125 is going to feel more like a pushbike.
