When you pass the test ,please dont go mad and buy a 400 or above stick to a 175 for a couple of years then increase your engine size gradually as your skill and knowledge increases
Potential corpses usually buy something like a fireblade on passing their test then die cos they dont have the experience to handle that kind of power

Going to look at my DAS towards the end of Summer after a few hundred miles on the 125.


Go for it :D

I did my CBT, theory, DAS & test in four weeks...hectic but great fun :)

Passed first time with a couple of minors (the test is no big deal if you keep calm and think).

It WILL also make you a better car driver....ever since I did mine I've had this pet hate about Lane Discipline, something that most car drivers don't even know exists :roll: :roll: :evil:
