    Passed my CBT today on a 125 pizza bike! Great fun though, I can't wait to get on to something bigger. I'm going back for a 2 hour 125 lesson on Friday then on to a bigger ride thereafter. Not sure when I'm going to be able to get the time to do the test, as I have to sort theory etc.

    Not exactly a proper biker just yet (nor a very exciting post), but it's a start :p

    Congrats! Are you going to buy a 125 to practice on?

    I'm hoping to do my CBT soon.

    CBT's basically just a day's training. Start simply by going in a straight line, then cone drills, gradually increasing in complexity. Then out on the road for 2 hours. By the end I was reasonably confident, but will need a couple of lessons first.

    I don't think I'll rush into buying a 125 as I want to try to do my direct access test sooner rather than later. Perhaps circumstances will change when I move to Brighton and realise that there's no parking anywhere.
