A2 mod 2 test


Recommended Posts

Found out I had to wait the 10 days. Could get another test at another test centre but 9 days after my first failure. Why A2. Decided to limit my cc to 600. Have since decided to limit myself to 125cc as I'm 68 ++ so not interested in tearing up the roads.

I understand your reasoning especially around town. However there are a couple of reason why you might want to think slightly bigger:-


My CBR is about as fast as a 125cc will go and it only gets up to about 60MPH in a straight line and takes a while to get there. There is always the temptation to corner quicker since to takes time to get back up to speed, so the additional head room of power would be less effort, safety, and put less stress on the mechanical.


The other thing is bike cost. I looked at swapping my 125 for a used 500 and the cost difference is £500. A 125 is the upper limit for small bikes so they are in demand. There is probably less demand for a 250cc since its not on the limit but would do 70 MPH easily without being aggressive.
