Hi

Post by AnnaD843 » Wed Jul 01, 2020 7:20 am

Hi all.

I joined this forum because i'm new to motorcycling and don't know a lot about it right now.

I'm getting a Mash 50cc after I finish my CBT, but I don't have a bike right now.

Thanks for reading. :-)

Welcome,
why just a 50cc? When you pass, most get bored with a 150 very quickly, 50cc is very low power and creates it's own problems.

Hello and welcome, unless you are 16 you would be better on a 125cc :thumb:

Hi all, forgot to mention. Yes I am 16 so 50cc is the best I can get. I'll de-restrict it when i'm 17 because I think going too slow is a bit dangerous because i've seen people get annoyed and pull infront of people who are going slow. I also forgot to mention that sometimes I can't be bothered to use grammar so sorry if that bothers anyone lol.

Hi Anna, if it's a 4T it can't be derestricted and you would be better trading it in for a 125 :thumb:

When 17 you will want a 125 forget the de-restriction

Not being good at grammar is fine, being good and being too lazy is just a waste 😁 we're not the grammar police but a couple on here have grammar pcso ambitions.

Yes but try to remember that's a problem with them, not you. Don't let it put you off! You have a lot of learning to do and hopefully it's the start of a lovely money pit passion

Grammar is only important when it helps understanding of what you're trying to say. The old joke that grammar is the difference between:

Helping your uncle jack off a horse
Helping your uncle jack, off a horse
