Motorcyclists are a good example of the Darwinian cull theory in practice.
You're a good example of someone letting their prejudices blind them. Or maybe just a fat smelly troll who's too afraid of life to have any fun.

Are you Sleeping Beauties brother,Sleeping Ugly? Or has it really taken you all these weeks to think of this snappy reply?
Or is it just that you are following me around on this forum trying to be offensive. The day a no mark, underachiever like you can manage it will be a cold day in hell, little man

Really smart looking bike for the money, shame all the 125s tend to be 4 stroke nowadays, this would be awesome with a decent 2 stroke engine in. I had a couple of Aprilia RS125's when I was younger and they were great fun.
Fitting a 2 stroke motor would seem a bit pointless as it would still have to be limited to 11kW for the A1 licence (I can't imagine anyone else would buy a 125cc bike). Given that the power would be restricted, I can't see any advantage in a 2 stroke (much worse fuel consumption, less reliable, noisier, impossible to meet emissions regulations).
emissions ? you're having a laugh :)
4 stroke 125... sluggish acceleration and 70 mph top speed, maybe
2 stroke 125... rapid acceleration (for a 125) and 100mph+
no contest
I think you have misunderstood this issue. there is no motorcycle with 11kW (2 stroke or 4 stroke) and so legal for an A1 licence that is capable of 100 mph.
maybe not a modern one, but old school 125's which are 12 to 15bhp and perfectly legal to ride at 17 will reach 100mph, RD125LC, NSR125, RG125 etc.
having owned an RD and NSR I can personally attest to it... on a private road of course :D
With respect Soweezy, you are talking absolute rubbish! 11kW is 15 PS (give or take) and none of the modern crop of bikes will do 100 mph, not ever with Lester Piggott riding it in a skin suit. Learner 125s were limited to 12 BHP right back in 1982, the RD125LC being restricted to only 12 PS specially for the UK market (the other manufacturers had to do the same with their models), here is a link that explains that story:http://classic-motorbikes.net/yamaha-rd125lc-road-test/
As the article says, it is quite possible to modify the RD125LC to produce double that power, but no way would it be legal for someone to ride that on an A1 licence as you claim.
It is completely irrelevant to this post, but I you have extremely rose tinted spectacles on when reminiscing about 125cc 2 strokes, none of the restricted ones could possibly have done 100 mph with a mere 12PS, and if they were not the restricted model they could not be ridden on an A1 licence.
7 stone dripping wet on a 125 stroker easily saw 100mph on the clock, tanking it down the old A1, no rose tinted geps
even my FS1E did 65mph with a few tuning mods, exhaust, air filter, rotary valve, jetting and smaller rear sprocket... I feel really old now :(
I was happy with 60mph from my bog standard and new Fs1e in my day... I did used to regularly take the head off and polish the piston crown with Duraglit though!

Motorcyclists are a good example of the Darwinian cull theory in practice.
You're arguing that the surviving motorcyclists are superior to the general population then?
Are you sure you understand your own point?
Your argument would hold true if motorcyclists were a species,not a less developed subspecies(homo non sapiens?). The problem with having a discussion with motorcyclists is that few are alive long enough to continue it. Or can only drool in their wheelchair.
If only use of ad hominem was a sign of development, eh?

I've been riding 22 years. How long do you need to make your point ?
