    Right so ive started to get my gear together, have a helmet, gloves and some leather bottoms. I want to buy a Yamaha yzf-r125 which will cost me roughly £1,500. My insurance will be roughly £1,300 for my first year and I can support these funds as I work. Im still not 17 though, and turn 17 in December. I was thinking of just doing my CBT, buying my 125 and then waiting till December to ride it but im not sure if this is a good decision as ill have to start it up every week at least once to keep the engine lubricated. I mean i would go on rides in a place called CarDrome you pay £15 and ride on private property for however long you want, no insurance no license completely legally. Whats your thoughts and opinions?

    To be honest, lubricating the engine won't take very long and a couple of minutes Rickover should keep it running well. It's nice to hear that you want to ensure that your bike will last. Personally I would wait until December though.

    One question, if i buy the bike, i wont be able to ride it back and the bike wont be insured. So can my friend with a full bike license and insured to ride other bikes ride it back? Is that legal?

    I'd say go for it, practice and get used to it. Better that than go out into the road the first time and be less experienced than you could've been on a bike.

    Even though I wouldn't recommend taking advice from the one who doesn't speak..... I do agree with the above
