quick hello

#1 Post by bantamman » Thu Nov 08, 2018 8:41 pm

Good evening all. Very old newbie here (65) Named Dave. I have returned to motorbike ownership after a gap of 50 years with quite a tame 125cc. I've done my CBT. Boy oh boy have the rules changed a bit or what !! I don't remember pot holes back in the sixties......
So i would love some help from you gals and guys please. Some realy basic questions to start with.
