But...

I've just got back from a very wet CBT day. It rained pretty much from the moment I got ON the motorbike until the moment I got OFF the motorbike.

I spent the morning doing figure of eights and learning how to control the clutch and then the afternoon going around the local neighborhood.

At the end I was told I'd passed. Squeee! I'm now allowed to ride up to a 125cc on a learner plate. My instructor also voiced concern over my electric moped (with a top speed of about 26 mph). So perhaps I should look for a very VERY cheap 125 to practice on. Any thoughts?

Nikki.

If you get a proper bike you should be more stable, as the big wheels act a a stabilising influence.

Get something normal. I know some of us went mad on the MZ's, but finding someone to repair an east german wierd-ass bike in downtown Brizzle is far from easy. Get something the local garages will understand.

Congratulations chica.

MZ ETZ 125 - Awesome 2 stroke, especially once you've got electronic ignition. Virtually no maintainance. Just remember to use 'some oil'.

MZ RT 125 - Awesome proper 4 stroke bike, or so I'm told. I've seen one and a very nice MZ owner let me use his parking permit (I'd no idea who he was) when I was stuck in the middle of some town or other. He reckoned it was a lovely bike. :)

Suzuki 125s are what I did my test on, and that was fairly okay for a 4 stroke 125.

I am *not* advising you to get a real bike (waves at Kate).
