    hmm, i was originally going to go for a scooter but they sound embarising going to try and get myself a summer job to save up a little bit, mum and dad will also input a little too

    was yours new? and are they easy to service/repair? been told they need servicing all the time?

    Just don't forget when you buy it, your budget also needs to cover your insurance and running costs (including petrol, although 50cc doesn't use much lol)

    Derbi GPR50

    Although £3k for a 50cc bike does seem steep!

    Get a will.

    buy an RS50 for a grand, and you'll be spending double that in the year youve got it just fixing the thing!

    people say this but why? is it because they are badly made or because people have messed about with them?

    will get one next year, not 17 yet until then

    I really can't imagine having a bike at the age of 16 oO if i did i don't think i'd be here now!...I took and passed my bike test when i was 33, loved having a bike but then got rid of it when the baby came along as although i'm a good rider it's the other road users i don't trust.

    So miss it now though, especially seeing all the bikes over here tt week

    Good luck though, and be safe

    Get a scooter and become a Mod !!

    great life ahead of you !!
