Hello everyone.

#1 Post by WACKYRACER143 » Sun Jan 06, 2019 10:18 am

Hi. I bought a 2018 Yamaha MT 125 two weeks ago. I'm unable to ride It as I haven't don't my CBT yet ( two weeks time ) looking forward to getting out on the bike. Previous experience was on a 50cc scooter 20 years ago. At the age of 48 I've decided that its now or never. Recently moved from London to Mid Wales. Idea is to get a year or two experience on the 125, then do my full licence. 👍🙂
