    Bought a suzuki van van 125 a few weeks back, it's brilliant. Just failed my mod 1 test though, my only problem was I couldn't get 50kph in time, first tried in second gear and it screamed it's heart out, second try was in 3rd but I lost time with the gear change, 45kph both times. Any advice? Much appreciated

    Leave it in second gear and allow it to scream... Make sure you carry a decent amount of speed through the corner beforehand.

    I did 49kph then about 57 after carrying more corner speed.
