First Oil Top Up

Hey girls and guys,
So only been rididng for a few months now and can't tell you how much I love it despite being a complete newbie but need some advise on my motorcycle oil.

Basically I bought the bike brank spanking new and now it's been about 3 months my oil needs a little top up, the problem is with this being the first top up I didn't know if I could just simply add new oil to the engine or whether I would have to make sure I buy the same grade, brand or type (non synthetic or synthetic) of oil as what's already in there...
or the other thing I've seen on here is that if you don't know what's already in there you should drain the oil and change the filter :s

The bike is a honda CBR125R as well,
thanks in advance everyone :P

New French Laws

The French being French will just ignore any law they don't like and if the authorities start clamping down , they'll take to the streets and bring the country to a standstill as they've done before.
Unlike most countries , when French bikers protest , they do it properly .............

The FFMC (our equivalent to MAG) are are quite a powerful group who have been known to bring every major city in France to a standstill at the same time. Got caught up in one in Marseille once - very impressive.
The chances of being pulled in France by the police are slim if you're on British plates unless you're doing something really stupid. They can't be arsed with the paperwork.

I think I can

Anyone else notice that VD Mark and Smith look a lot alike (beyond the Pata leathers)? Mark's Dutch (and of course English) are more comprehensible than whatever Smith is speaking.

Engine number discrepancy

I have just noticed that the engine number on my bike's engine doesn't quite match the engine number quoted on the V5 Registration document.
The bike has been away for 8 months (yes, there's a separate thread for this story) and was delivered back this week.
I don't think the engine has been swapped while away, and the engine number stamp does not seem to have been tampered with.
The number on the engine is a 10-character number.
The number on the V5 is a 12-character number.
The last 6 numbers are identical between the engine and the V5.
I don't know if this is normal.
I have to admit I can't remember checking the engine number when I bought the bike used, 3 years ago from the very reputable dealer. So I don't know if the discrepancy has been there since the bike was first registered, or since I registered it (thinking maybe a cock up by DVLA when I registered it to me).
Any thoughts?
