  1. I've been using a heavy cover from xlmoto which was great until someone stole it off the bike. I replaced it with an oxford aquatex cover and it's terrible. On a positive note it's thin and light enough to put in my top box. But it bellows about in the wind and it is definitely not waterproof. When I've used it the bike is wet underneath. My bike is garaged up for now but I'll not be using the Oxford cover again
  2. If you can, go have a sit on a few bikes and see what feels best. When it comes to performance, 125s won't have a big difference between them as they are limited to their power. Have a look at any that catch your eye. The Suzuki band the Yamaha are very similar, both have about the same power, weight, abs, seating position. But you won't know until your try them out.
  3. I've had mine for just over a year. I commute on it in to London daily (pre covid). I think it has the lightest bhp to weight ratio for 125s. It's nippy for a 125 , much more so than my previous honda cb125f. It is advertised as over 100 mpg but I don't know what I'm getting. I've not checked but I put about £5 a week in the tank. I use a 37L top box regularly which is perfect on the bike. I think I've hit 65 on the north circular even with the box on and full of stuff. There are the usual after market parts available bit mines standard. http
  4. I have a Suzuki gsxs 125. 15bhp, light and easy to handle with Japanese reliability. I can't recommend it highly enough.
  5. I'm thinking of getting a sv650 for commuting but I don't like the headlight. Are you saying if I take out the existing bulb and stick an led in it is illegal but if I replace the whole thing with something like in the link below then it is ok? Presuming that it is marked ok for road use etc. https://www.ledperf.co.uk/led-headlight-for-suzuki-sv-650-x-round-motorcycle-optics-approved-p-33060.html?gclid=CjwKCAiAl4WABhAJEiwATUnEFx0kltUCkSVgrgP_zoulDHc5dWHjd-bp_2blV5MbVpp4pa6s6KOAoBoCvScQAvD_BwE
  6. My little Suzuki got a little clean recently before being stored away over Christmas and New year. Such a great bike, I can't believe Suzuki go from 125 up to 750 and nothing in between for this model.
  7. If you're not used to running then go to a proper running shop and speak to someone that knows trainers and what will suit you. Flat feet wide feet running gait etc all affect what what will suit you. My gf did the couch to 5k. She hates the first few days but stuck with it and now she's running basically every other day.
  8. How do you find the five gloves? I'm tempted to get a pair of them, although the variations for their heated gloves is a bit confusing. I have a pair of five gloves I use I'm warmer times and they fit perfectly so I'm tempted but they are a bit expensive

  10. My first ride after CBT was to collect my new cb125 from the Honda dealer. I was excited but still waited for the Honda guy to leave before I set off incase I made an idiot of myself in the first few yards. That drive home brought me down country lanes, a roads, the steepest hill I've ever seen and in through London. It took about 45 minutes but felt like forever. However I did love it Also that day i learned honda accept credit cards for deposits not for the balance. Lucky I had money in savings to cover it.
  11. No nothing changed at all which was kind of the nail in the coffin. Things weren't great but I had my head in the sand. Marriage just highlighted it and some very expensive lessons were learned
  12. Met at 16, married at 29, divorced at 30. That was a few years ago now. Both of us have met someone since and much happier. If it's not right then talk it out and fix it or move on.
