    Motorbike test

    Post by Skajosh on Thu Sep 27, 2012 4:01 am

    Right, so.
    I wanna do my bike test next year (no point banging on about the new rules and regs i don't give a fuck) I haven't got cash at the moment.

    So, do I need to provide a dyno slip if I wanna go on my t5?
    or will it do with being on the logbook?

    Nope, it'll be logged on the list of approved bikes, as long as you have a pair of mirrors and front and back L plates you should be reet

    Cheers, better have a gander for some mirrors. You know about getting clip on ones to the headset? don't wanna be drilling holes as there is too circular marks on the headset where they could potentially be bolted on.

    Easy solution. Buy something like them ^^

    They bolt on the under the headset then attach the mirrors. Job done

    you need to go with CBT, License (paper and plastic) and a theory test certificate

    i also read somewhere about some people being turned away for not wearing armoured jackets n the like

    this is a good website to practise your theory on btw

    How do the new regulations effect the capacity of the bike you can ride?

    I wouldn't know pamby, it's something I best gander into.
    I won't be getting much bigger than a 125 for a while anyway, probs a 200 in the long run but thats it really.

    I'm sure there just lots of different classes for the cc of bike you can ride. I'd do it so you can at least ride a 259 then you would be covered for every scooter out there.

    i heard that if you pass on 125 then its 125 for life but if you pass on 395cc or more then your restricted to 600cc then theres a seperate test after that for big bikes - unless you do direct access

    its all stupid!

    Its a 125 and your stuck with a 125 or able to ride anything under 15hp.
    Then, when 19 you can take it on 400 and be stuck with anything upto a 400 that's when your 19. Then 21 its up to the big boys.

    In all honesty, its propper shite for us. but if you think about it, it will save a lot of lifes from young idiots who rally around and get killed.
    Sometimes there is other reasons but you know, its more costy way. But face it, a 400 will be more than enough for any 19 year old.
    I ride a 250 a month ago, madly different to the scooter and reached sixty 20times quicker than the scooter.

    I'd quite happily have a 125 full licence.
    If I was to have a 125 bike they are way quick enough really.
    I honestly will never ride anything with a mahoosive cc, theres no point imo. I dont find any enjoyment in anything like that

    I'm up for having a bigger bike in a few years for cruising on the motorway ofc, a nice 80-90 yo where I need to be. But at this time I doubt ill have one.

    I'm no fan of motorcycles I find most of them boring looking and boring to ride. Obviously some of the huge cc sports biked look ok and are probably very nice/scary to ride.... But there's not the appeal.

    By up to 250, I meant if you built a lambretta with a thumping 250cc engine or a p200 with a kit you would be fully legal.

    I never obey the law. Fuck da police.

    In all honesty, I think im turning more green. I like vehicles that are good on fuel and make me stop all the time.
