    Hi motorcycling cutters!

    I've recently been learning to ride, have done my CBT and theory test and I've been doing my MOD 1 training which I was comfortable with so went ahead and booked the test, it's now been cancelled because of what's happening in the world. GOV website says no driving tests for 3 months at least. So June before I can do it by the looks of things, really wanted to get through before summer but is what it is and not a lot I can do about it!

    Would you get a 125 and get some experience in the meantime?I know first world problems and all that but I've been really excited about getting on a bike this year.

    What's people's thoughts?

    I’d say if you really wanted to get on one sooner rather than later and you can afford to do so (with the obvious going on I mean), then you might as well get a 125, get some road experience on such at a time when the roads might be a bit more quiet and therefore enjoyable?! :thumbsup2:

    I would agree with the above in the present circumstances (or at least when the restrictions end, if there's time!).
    Experience is everything on a bike, as far as I'm concerned.

    Agree with the above also. Makes sense

    Sorry Op but you should not be riding anywhere ATM as riding for leisure is banned under present legislation.

    Thanks for the input guys, my first post was before the restrictions came into force, the motorcycling dream will have to wait until after this, :( keep safe everyone.
