I do mostly agree with you but 125's are not that good to get experiance on, something like the CB500's are good not to much power but enough, I used to teach learners and they all progresedd much better on the 500's than on the 125's. There is no substitute for experiance, thats why I still take extra training ROSPA Gold Standard I have to retest and train every 3 years .

The older I get the better I was, must be mad not got enough money to be excentric
