125 ad

Hi all
Just joined and was looking for advice. I've made the decision to go down the 125cc route, take my test in the spring, maybe stick with the 125 for a while and then get something bigger.

Does anyone have any experience of owning CPI's or Lexmoto's etc? They look so cheap to buy and I only live half a mile from a CPI dealer so servicing/repaires would be to much of an issue. Or, should I spend my £1700 on a second hand Honda/Yamaha etc.:unsure: (i'm 43 yrs old, a bloke and and short, 29" leg so size matters). It's only going to be used for local pleasure/weeknds etc

Your opinions or advice would be much appreciated.

A used Jap 125 from one of the main manufacturers is likely to me more reliable and nicer to ride.  You'll also have less of a problem selling it and get more of your money back when you come to trade up.

Passing your test.

Think about passing your test before the changes come in in 2013 as it then gets harder to get a big bike licence.

Have you managed to purchase a good 125? If not I could possibly help out.
