    A - do a search
    B- look down the current page in all the motorbike threads ive written in twice in the last week

    First bike was 700£ a 400cc bike, my bf;s was £550 for a 250cc bike. Insurance was about 500£ TPFT less as your female than if you were male

    Gear allow 50£ for jacket, £30 gloves, £50 helmet then you should get boots and protective trousers (http://www.mandp.co.uk/productinfo/2...rousers/Tech-7)


    You do your cbt for a moped at 16, restricted to 50cc

    At 17 you can do a cbt and ride up to 125cc with L plates, or go onto your bike theory test and a1 bike test, and be restricted to 33bhp for 2 years then ride what you like

    At 21 you do your cbt, bike theory test and DAS and ride what you like

    Petrol i spend 15£ a tank, and it does 180miles generally.
