    Scooter to Bike

    Hi folks, Ive just got rid of my vespa and looking to get a real motorbike just a 125 for starters, are they a lot harder to handle and gear wise easy to pick up as my vespa was twist and go ?

    Cheers

    A bit harder if you never used gears before but will not take too long to get the hang of it just take your time and dont rush. Find some where quite to start off with or maybe an hour or two with a bike school.

    thats sacrilege, so for that im out

    i had a sccoter 50cc and decided to go for a bigger bike, looked around and decided to go for a 125 cc and got an mbk skyliner, big bike and really fast, i was going to go with manual but figured stick with what you know, pretty much the same as riding the 50 cc and took like 5 mins to get used to the extra power behind it.

    if your after a more sporty look, go for the gilera scooter made to look like a sports bike, can get them in 125 and they go around 80 ish top speed and cruise around 65-70

    Have you seen some of the ones on Aberdeen Gumtree? Also check ebay, theres a couple...
