PostSubject: Hi All, this is my intro   Fri Nov 13, 2009 11:46 am

First off, I just wanna say what a good idea having this type of group is. Bikers do get a real bad image.

I am fairly new to riding bikes; I passed my CBT back in Oct 2007 and bought a Yamaha YBR 125 new from a shop in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire in April of 2008. I passed the test in Oct after riding for about 4-5 months of riding.

That bike is now broken and in my garage from riding all the way down to Bristol and back.. 2ice this summer. Until yesterday I didn't have a job and so getting even a slightly bigger bike that could cope with motorways wasn't an option.

Now I will be working as close to full time as making no difference, I am looking to buy an old Suzuki GS 850 GL 1981 from a friend who's dad left it to him when he bailed on him mum as boy. It has been sitting in a garage for the last 12 years. It has about 20k on the clock and he wants £750 for it, but it would need some patching up before I could ride it. (Possibly new tires, Ignition system and restriction to 33bhp (until Oct of next year)

I would like to ask the opinions of people who know something about bikes lol, do you think buying this bike is a good idea?

Thanks for your help in advance. If and when I get this (or another) bigger bike, I would very defiantly be interested in coming on ride outs etc.

Yours, Spacey

Hi Spacey,
welcome to FR, there are quite a few of us on our A2 licenses here if u need any tips on what to get!
unfortunately i dont know much about the bike you're thinking of getting but as long as the people who used it showed it reasonable TLC im sure it can get started up again!
if you have facebook do become a fan of us at:
www.facebook.com/freedomrydaz

PRE

oh and also u dont need a big bike or well a bike at all to come to our meets, we have people driving or cycling up even, and our rides are good for all [trust me because i ride a CBR125R!] lol cya

Cheers PRE Smile

The Facebook group is how I found this forum in the first place Very Happy I think it might have been in the classified adds bit on the side. Very Happy

Anyway, I was told that there is a test between A2 and full A? I am a little confused.

Thanks again

cool stuff!
how old are ya?
if you are under 21 then you have to just wait your 2 years...however if you turn 21 during the 2 years you can do your DAS and get on big bikes straight away! but its costly!

So.. After the 2 years I will be 20.. I am 19 now, had my first year pass in Oct. Will I suddenly be able to jump on any bike at that takes my fancy and ride off on it? Or is there a like.. something I need to go though for that?

How would I get my license updated? Haha! I didn't realise I had so many questions.

Thanks man.

great...yep once you get to ocotober 2010...as far as i know [although im waiting till next april for mine to de-restrict so ur better off asking me then!] ...you just send your license to the DVLA and they erase the restriction code, and yep ride whatever takes your fancy!

Sent an email to the DVLA. You can just jump on any bike and ride as soon as the 2 years are up Smile

You can send your license in and have them take the power limit symbols off for £20 but you don't have to. Good times!
