    what next

    looking to do my test soon and buy my next bike, just wondering what sort of bike to get as the next step from a 125, i know its going to have to be restricted to 33bhp but thats still more than what my rs is putting out at the mo. any suggestions?

    600, zx6r r6 gsxr triumph daytona...

    400 if you're a ghey and scared of powah.

    A thou if you want to ride with no insurance and hate the world = resulting in early death.

    Thats my useless input cos I'm feeling lazy, sorry.

    Normally just washers I think, cost about 20 quid for a kit and 200 odd for a certificate signed and garage to do it for you.

    Bullshit really but meh.

    All depends on what you want. First thing you could ask yourself is "how's the RS been?" and "where to now?"
    Do you like the RS riding position? Or do you want something a bit more relaxed?
    I went for a CBR600 after I passed my test, and it's more relaxed and easier to ride - the RS wants to be ragged about more

    A big thing is style / fashion / whatever, isn't it? You'll probably already have a shortlist in your mind. Supersports / sports / Fazer-type thing?

    imagine your RS with a really fat girl on the back, with a passion for expensive tyres. thats wat a restricted 600/1000 is like. stick with a full power RS till u can go all the way, anything with 33bhp exact is gonna weigh so much more than the RS it wont b any faster

    I agree.

    Still, at least you're a good boy for wanting it restricted.

    I would guess it would be 3 points and a fine for riding with no licence.
