mod 1 pass but mod 2 fail

hi everyone, well i failed my mod 2 not badly just one thing rest of the ride was good but hey ho, anyway it got me thinking that i dont really want a big naked sportsbike i only want a mid sized trail bike like a drz 400 or similar so i was wondering if its possible to take my mod 2 on a 125 and go on a restricted for 2 years as tbh 33bhp wont bother me to be honest as most of the riding i will do will be on lanes etc, also have i lucked out regarding the new law in jan as im completely confused as to what i can ride etc, i am 45 aswell i might add.thanks simon. ps. i did my mod 1 on a full power 600 .

I believe you need

to do both parts of the test on the same category bike, not mix and match, so you'll need to do mod 1 again on the 125 if passd the first one on a 35kW + bike.

Might to wrong mind :unsure:

dam

oh really, doesnt make sense really as a 600 is harder to control and less nimble at low speed , the law is definately an ass. lol

On second thoughts

just redo your mod 1 again, saves fcuking about with restrictions,you can ride abroad?, demo bikes from dealers, the worlds your oyster (or at least the roads),

P.S riding a 125 is harder than riding a bigger biker under mod 2 test condition imho.

.

i did the 33bhp test 5years ago and with my 900cc bike clamped to 33bhp i went to france as soon as i got my paper work from the dvla and the bike was happy to sit at 80mph.

just do the mod 2 on a 125cc bike as its easyer to ride one for the test then get a drz400 as it my only have low bhp or can be clamped.
