First topic message reminder :

Hi All,

Firstly, thank you to Ed for the welcome message and my friend Guy for letting me know of this great forum.

My name is Chris and I have a CBR125R...
Yes, you have read correctly, I am a guy and ride a 125... please go easy on me

I am still on my Ls and going for my Ps soon.
So I am still a beginner and there's heaps of room for improvement

What else can I say... I love riding!

Safe riding everyone!

Chris

chris, i was in your position until this wednesday morning. don't worry about what other people say. Enjoy learning on the bike and then upgrade when you feel comfortable. There's no rush to get a litre or 600cc bike. Take your time get confident and comfortable and then do it. Thats what i am doing.

Thanks Enigma.
With a 125, I take plenty of time :p
Sometimes, it's intimidating when people tailgate me because I accelerate slowly when the lights goes green... keep in mind I do keep to the left lane unless overtaking. I guess people think that because I am on a bike, they expect me to zooooommm off...
Though, nothing will deter me from riding... I just love it too much Wink

Welcome Chris. If you're considering different bikes remember another option... you can have some seat foam scooped out then re-upholster it. It might make enough of a difference to avoid any mechanical adjustments. Also look for narrower seats as a wide seat makes the reach to the ground that little bit further.

Hi Chris,

Welcome to this fantastic forum, everyone is soooo helpful in here.

I started with CBR125, and that really got me into the motorbike world.

Hope to meet you soon.
