    ok, i'm doing my cbt in a fortnight.

    i cant decide which bike i want (getting one in march )

    my choices

    varadero 125 - looks a bit big for a 125 but apparently not underpowered - 3000quid (darn school pcs)





    XRL 125 - looks fun and ive heard its pretty good offroad - 2000quid



    p.s post pics of other bikes to drool over if you want B)
    I survived the great winter 03/04 depression

    I thought you said Motorbikes - not mopeds

    Just kidding, nice one - good luck and be carefull - my personal favourite is the Intruder 1400 - nice cruising model - something to look forward to maybe??

    Be extremely wary of others, they dont see you and you have to think for them - motorbikes dont exist for the ordinary motorist so treat them as assholes and you might survive - i mean that

    Peace

    Don&#39;t worry about the CBT, it&#39;s not really any different from a Cycling proficience test, 99.9% people pass it

    As for the bike, XLR125
    I had an XL250 (which is a chunky bike) and they are good off road.
    But take note of what ukman said, Lights on 100% of the time.
    To car drivers you are invisible.

    And don&#39;t be a muppet and drive like a twat cos you give us bikers a bad name

    Just enjoy the freedom

    And you can&#39;t ride bigger than a 250 for 2 years after getting a liscence in the uk unless you&#39;re over 25

    ive done loads of research, theres different types of license. i could do my cbt and get a1 on my license which means i can get a 125. or i could do the proper test and get anything upto 33bhp. that could mean in a month or two i&#39;d be riding a 650cc bike (restricted a bit ). the insurance would kill me though

    heres another picture of that varadero. i really like and want this bike but i wanna know how it performs before thinking about paying for it.



    or i could be good for 2 years and get the 1000cc version
