I said i was getting a 125, and i wasn't lying, was i? Here it is, a 2006 honda CBR125R. Not exactly the fastest thing in the world (only 10 kW/ 10.6 N·m), but it's got good brakes and handles well.
Just passed the first, off road section of the motorbike test. Got 2 minors because i wasn't going fast enough! When i say not fast enough, i mean 49 km/h when the minimum speed was 50. What i think is stupid is the fact that all the regs are in km/h when it says:
The motorcycle you use for your test must be:
- 75 cc or more
- fitted with a speedometer that measures speed in mph
- display L-plates ('L' or 'D' plates in Wales) on the front and rear
- be legal and roadworthy and have no engine warning lights showing"
you've got to love the UK government and the driving standards agency and everything. Beurocracy at it's best.
