How much is your Riding gear.........?

@Roasted-Piglet I think it's an unfortunate name but I guess I'll have to put up with it :smiley: Maybe I could cover the logos with stickers.

I've just spent fifteen minutes peeling off some stickers I didn't like that the previous owner put on the fairing. And now I know why they were there. Big ugly mark that needed hiding :open_mouth:

Lorenzo and Rossi now have respect

Yeah finally the Dogturd has kind of admitted he was wrong to try and stab his team mate in the back and get him sacked. Issuing a Factory with a Ultimatum and when his bluff was called crying off to Ducati where he should have been left to rot.

Nice of him, Eh?

CBT woes

@bmwgs said:

Do you know any one with a 125 gear bike you could learn on in a carpark or on privet land.

Don't toss the letter Q onto privet land if rabbits and foxes are there.

Ginger Prix Motorcycles Norwich

I'm a new biker, and still trying to find my way in the wide world of bikes! I'm looking to buy my first 125cc bike after completing my CBT, which I'm mainly going to be using for commuting, but would also like to ride with my friend on a weekend. Most of my commute is 50/60mph A roads, with a 2 mile stretch of dual carriageway and a sprinkling of 30/40mph zones, so I'm trying to find myself a Honda CBR125R from 2011 onwards as that's the one I like the look of most!

Anyway, back to the topic - I've found a couple of nice looking bikes advertised through Gumtree by Ginger Prix Motorcycles in Long Stratton near Norwich, but it's quite a long way from where I live, and I can't find a lot of information about them. They only started to post on their facebook page a couple of months ago, so I'm guessing it's a fairly new business, but I was hoping some more knowledgeable people might be able to help!

I know my budget (£2,000) will be stretched trying to get the bike that I want, but as it's my first bike I don't want any insurance category bikes and would prefer to buy from some kind of garage for a little bit more peace of mind. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
