Found 26th Aug 2008
I currently have a 50cc moped on a provisional and only had to do a CBT for this.
I've had my cbt for about 4 months, will I be able to ride a 125 without any further tests etc?
I know you have to do a 125 test if your riding a geared bike but im not sure about a automatic scooter.

Cheers.

as lomg as your 17 or older you dont need anything else to ride a 125cc

if u have a cbt on manual bike, you can ride 125 geared....

you need L plates on the 125, you cant ride on motorways and cant carry pillions until you have done your advanced course. When you have you can do all what i mentioned previously. Then 2 years after you have done your advanced course...you can ride a 250. When you are over 21...you can get a beast!!!!

my brothers gonna do his 500cc test soon, he bought an old chicken chaser with big thin wheels as his first bike which he is going to give to me when i go to uni lol, it looks well funny. i would never dare go on anything more powerfull than a 250cc tho i would carp my pants

Biggest iv ridden is a 125...now that was fun :-D

ive driven a 250cc quad bike. and boy it was fun but really fast for a first time lol.

Are you men or mice? :whistling:

TBH If I get back into biking it will be a big loud custom bike, more style than speed is more my thing, so long as its got enough power to pull out of junctions sharpish and avoid idiots, i'd have to wimp out and avoid a hardtail though as my back is about shot as it is!

bikes are fun but they dont beat cars

bikes are fun but they dont beat cars


In what way?

well if i was going to get something to do long journeys on i would get a car however if i wanted something to go into town on i would get a moped, thts the transition i think, i wouldnt want anything bigger than 125cc because i wouldnt be going far on it anywayso thats why i thin that bikes are fun because i would only use one for joyriding

The right bike/weather/roads and a long journey can be better than by car even on comfort levels and definitely a heck of a lot more fun, thats another reason for customs, most production bikes are designed for aerodynamics and clean lines first comfort second, a properly done custom is often done to suit the rider and becomes an extension of them, as uncomfortable as a chopper style looks for a long journey they are more comfortable than a sports bike, thats why so many customs are done in that style.

dont get me wrong i love customs, i think they have so much more charcter than sports bikes but i think i wouldnt be able to ride one for so long, doesn it get hard riding for so long, surely it takes more concentration
