yeah man i'd go second hand most 125s for £3k are about a year or so old and in good knick, as most people that own them have passed their CBT and are waiting to do the full licence

GSXR-600, oh yeah baby! Get the yamaha if i was you, looks nice, sounds like a crate though. How old are you? DO NOT GET A BLOODY APPRILIA!

don't want to be be rude mate but it's all on the link of my last post.
just do your CBT, by it's definition you dont get to choose. the only choice comes in when you're older

TO SAM!...well i think put politley, your bolloxed...because end of july the test is changing which means more expensive, harder and MORE engine restrictions once you've passed (if you do). Sorry for the bad news, at least the Yamaha looks damn fine, and as for Aprillia's...there *text deleted**text deleted* build quality if you dont look after them (engine rebuilds are not uncommon every 10,000 miles if your lucky) other than that they handle pretty well, but thats it.

Do your DAS, and get a 600 buy the restrictor kit.

Simple as, back when i did a bike test there was nothing like this.

RS250's a good bikes, get a good one for around £3000 or a SRAD 600 if you do your DAS.

Failing that, just buy a track bike and do loads of track days. No licence required.....just a ACU.

Rossi is a professional......*text deleted**text deleted* happens, Casey is just a better rider.

No hes not - Direct Acccess is at 17.

if you read it through it's not mate- you can't DAS until you're 21, that's why it's called DIRECT access. see direct access section

http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Motoring/LearnerAndNewDrivers/LearningToDriveOrRide/DG_4022661

Its changed since *text deleted* done it, i did it when i was 17 years back. I stand corrected. I think it should be much harder to get a A or A1 licence any how. I see so many *text deleted**text deleted* heads on the road with bikes way to powerfull than their ability.

*text deleted* i agree with you, though to be honest i think born again bikers are the worst, absolutely no slow speed control, no life savers etc, filtering at 70mph and then i get banned for speeding on an open motorway at 3 in the morning....
that being said they should have the same sort of system for cars...

I wouldnt worry i got done at 136mph.....8 month ban. And potenially losing my FIM licence. If they had caught me earlier i was doing 160ish

I wouldnt say born again Riders more so than kids.....maybe its the attitude of riders. I spent alot of time training at track schools with the Bike Safe Team (people who attended 2 road courses were allowed to attend the track day) and the attitude is astonishing, all people give a *text deleted**text deleted* about is saying there fast rather than trying to be.
