I'd go for the DAS, mate......bigger bikes tend to have more road presence, better brakes......and power in reserve to get you out of trouble if you need it......and any bike will only go as fast as you let it go....... :wink: And bigger bikes are better for pillion too......well, some are better for pillion! ....... :wink: :lol:
I feel the need....the need for Speed......Triple

Welcome! £300 for a DAS is dirt cheap. Does it include the CBT? I forget whether they usually do or don't. If you've got your heart set on an 1100 then don't settle for a 125 - go the whole erm hog.

Thanks, Tango and Geofferz, for your advice. Although I think you misread my previous post, Geofferz, I don't intend to get an 1100. :D I don't think it includes the CBT. :?

Just been on to Bikerz in Liverpool and spoke to a helpful chap called, Ian. He said it was £95 for CBT. £300 for 4 x 2hr lessons and use of bike. I would have to pay for all tests. So all together about £550. I asked if it would be cancelled for inclement weather; he said no :shock: that means I may get wet!!

Yep. Mine was cancelled once due to ice on the tarmac but that's rare I think. Riding in the wet is fine though.

Alright,
I would get your full test done, bugger bike imo is a lot safer and more fun.
Where bouts in Liverpool you from?

Thanks for the advice, Mike. I'm in Litherland, Bob. With the weather, I've put it on the back burner for the moment. :D

alright and welcome,, am from Liverpool, west derby area. I’ve got a mate that has a 125cc and he comes out with us, I just let him lead so I don’t leave him behind. So your cbt, easy rider are good. Am sure they are in the dock road. Good luck and think me updated if you fancy a ride out some time 👍👍
