Up for sale is my beloved Yamaha R125. If you are reading this you will know that this is the best looking learner legal bike available- bar none. Not only that but it's the sexiest black and gold colour combination.

After years of nagging from my partner I finally jumped on a bike in Sept 2014 and learned to ride. From the moment I saw this bike I fell in love with it- from the sleek sport lines to the mean roar of the engine (courtesy of the fantastic Scorpion exhaust)- everything about this bike is perfect. It is a real head turner and always draws positive comments from onlookers. Needless to say it has the after market tail tidy- which makes the bike look infinitely better. The excellent award winning R+G heated grips have been fitted to keep your hands nice and toasty during the cold winter months. The latest Datatool alarm has been installed- worth around ?500. meaning that you can leave it secure in the knowledge that it will be safe from any unsavoury characters. Plus it will keep the insurance down. It also has the tinted double bubble screen- which conceals the front L plate quite nicely :)

I've covered around 4000 miles since September commuting an 80 mile round trip between Herne Bay and Gillingham- it has never let me down. The big tyres for a bike of this capacity offer excellent stability over the uneven pothole-filled A roads. while the excellent suspension ensures a comfy ride. Not only does it have the looks. security and comfort. this bike also boasts unbelievable fuel economy- an astonishing 100mpg! It costs just ?10 to fill up and that will get you around 300 miles. Tax just ?17/year. Riding this bike never fails to bring a smile to my face whenever I ride it. Travelling to work has become a real joy- even during the winter months. The only reason I am selling is that I have now passed my test and plan to travel to work via the M2- while this bike can hold a steady 70+mph I would prefer a larger capacity bike for riding on the motorway. It's worth noting that I'm 35 yo so the bike has not been thrashed and has been well maintained. I have no doubt that whoever buys this bike will be extremely happy with their purchase. This bike is an outstanding introduction to the motorcycle world but would also serve as a sexy. economical commuter.
