I got 1 minor on the Mod 1 for being 1kph too slow on my first avoidance run. Got 51kph the second time round, so was bang on. Sadly my budget for new bikes is rather tight, if currently none-existent... I've been earning £280 a month for the past 15 months so not exactly mr rich! Took me most of that time to save up for the lessons and tests. Thanks! If you're able to point me in the right direction of where to look for good enough 1st bikes. Learnt on a cbf500 with abs, and would love to try to find something similar to get me started. Gear isn't an issue as got all that already.
