    It has been asked before, and answered before. Some places do, but ring the companies and ask, rather than looking on websites. Tesco#s was one place that i think did them, virgin another.But my internets rubbish so i won't search.

    On the other side. Why get a car. Stick with the bike

    Firstly, stick with motorbikes.

    Secondly, if you think a 125 is quick off the line you're in for a giant shock...
    My offroad bike is quicker off the line.... on mud....in third gear.... whilst towing a trailer...

    Blast from the past, good to see you back.

    If we're doing cars vs bikes, I recon JCs MG - if hes finally built it - will give things a pretty good go. Still doubt it'll beat my bikes 3.6 seconds to 60 - but hes more than welcome to give it a go.

    Right, so a 1.6 saxo - a **** small car - beat you off the line, and then you think you can beat any car.... Hmm.... Put it against a Lambo, Ferrari even a Porsche and then see. Big bikes can have fun with supercars, your bike would be toast.

    Built it, raced it, sold it

    One of my good friends has an MG V8 which will do 0-60 in under 2 secconds and 0 - 127 in 11 secconds.


    Moving on to new things now... I'm considering giving the bike thing a go, but it'll be a cruiser. Suzuki VL 125 intruder or a Honda Shaddow 125.
    Car wise, I'm on the hunt for a 7.2 litre Jensen Interceptor III next. Although, I'd settle for a 6.3 litre if thats all that I can find in my price range.

    noooo, by the sounds of it, you like going fast, and round corners, get a real bike, not a cruiser.

    No, J.C. is into drag racing and point and shoot, so corners are a non issue, hence Cruiser sounds perfect!



    As for bikes Vs Cars, most superbikes will easily beat any supercar. I mean even something like GSX-R 750 would give any car a run for its money. A 125 though, I think you are clutching at straws on that one!

    Point n squirt is where it's at for me. I only do around 6000 miles a year these days anyway.
