Is it 16/17?

Age you got yours? Value for money? How long they last? Average price?


Thanks.

This message is hidden because black gerbil1 is on your ignore list.

you can ride up to 50cc with L plates at 16 yrs with a valid CBT (Compulsory basic training), which is a 1 day course. at 17 yrs you can get a 125cc moped or bike.

i bought 1 when i was 18 and fell off on my way home from the cbt :oops: now i hav a "proper" bike, a honda hornet and ive not fell off it yet :-D

as for prices try looking on biketrader

No, you can drive a 125cc at 17 with a CBT, then if you do your full bike test I think you can drive any bike as long as it's (seriously) restricted, then at 21 you can ride anything :thumbsup:

Correct me if I am wrong someone

i think if you pass your test on a 125 you have the restrictor (33bhp) for 2 yrs then you can ride anything enven if you're less than 21

16 for a 50cc :thumbsup: , i'd get an aprillia - 'apparantly' ;-) they can do 70 mph :whistling:
My first bike a Yamaha FS-1 aka fizzy :thumbsup:

Now have a Ducati 748 and a quadbike for the countryside :-D

We had an RS50, loved it! We got an RS125 after :-D

For the love of god, dont get a geared 50cc bike! Totally useless... Imo... get a 50cc scooter when your 16 ( de-restricted of course) and then when your 17 get a 125cc geared bike like the rs125
