That looks OK. 330 plus your CBT 115. Plus 31 for your Theory Test.

I would think your going to get around 10 hours for your DAS course which will include your Test appointments. ( sounds a lot But goes very quickly)

I would be giving them a ring to chat about doing your CBT on a 500cc to get the feel for the machine before arranging the DAS course and test.

Hope this helps Chris.

she won't understand pulling power (unlike the black shadow) she's a girl it comes down to looks and colour

very confused by this thread! It turns out the best 125 is a 600!

Nothing wrong with a wee 125 4 stroke trail bike for a commute, dont let them turn your head! Buy one for 1000 or so drive it for 6 months over the winter and if bikes are still for you then sell it for 900 and get the 600 and test etc.

this kind of thing http://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-m...-ovno/90638308

1000 should pick up a lovely one this time of year, trail bikes are more the kind of thing a rib man needs! Jetskiers like the sporty less comfortable uncomfortable delicate bikes! Get something you can ride up a kerb to avoid the cars!
