    Been looking at bikes n seen the cbr125 as an ideal bike.

    Before anyone's says it doesn't matter you will go upto a big bike soon enuf I plan to keep the bike 2 years or so.

    I always liked the look of the cbr125 and but having second thoughts after looking into it as it's a 4 stroke nice n reliable n good mpg what isn't bad but hear there slow compared to 2 stroke 125 unrestricted.

    This bike is going to solely be for weekend n nights if I feel like going a ride not for going to work in or that. Anyone have any suggestion on 2 stroke bikes to go for?

    dont like these trainer style things, look good if your just walking around with your lid trying to look cool, youd look even better missing an ankle lol

    If you get a 2 stroke 125 and derestrict it you may find your insurance invalid and potentially could get into difficulty with the authorities as the CBT regs state a max CC (125) AND a max power output (11 KW, which = 14.75 BHP). Thousands do de-restrict them of course, and most get away with it, but something to bear in mind.

    Re boots, I would go for something with ankle support, probably lace up, that you can wear all day. Personal preference though! Trainer style boots offer no protection to the ankle.

    Meh, the way I see boots is that they're there to keep all the broken bits in one place so its easier to put back together, not to provide protection.
