  1. Posted a while back when i had just got my Yamaha YBR Custom, got my CBT yesterday and had my first ride out on the road today. Did a whole circuit around Loch Ness, lived right next to it all my life but I still found 60 miles of roads with stunning views i never even knew existed before today! If cruising is your thing then it's definitely i must ride before you die.
  2. I am in the exact same boat you we, 17, YBR, need insurance. Tell me what deal you get and from who! pls edit:: i'm stupid i just revived an old old old thread.
  3. I've got the exact same bike, silver, just got it as my first bike Extremely happy with it!
  4. Found this, thought it was worth a share. Interesting stuff.
  5. Really appreciate the advice guys. I checked out everything that was recommended, read a lot of reviews, wanted to keep all my gear on one shopping list so i stuck to amazon also they do free returns on clothing if the size is wrong.

  6. damn. I want a dirt bike now.
  7. Was told to come here and say hello. I'm Owen, 17, Just purchased my first Motorbike. I've got a Yamaha YBR 125 Custom. I live far far out in the mountains with barren roads and needed a ride to University because student accommodation is too pricey!! And also went for motorbike over car because... let's face it. Which 17 year old male can afford a car, insurance, MOT, road tax and all the extras without having their parents chip in. I refuse to relay on anyone else especially when it comes to money. On the more positive side I have a 60 mile there and back trip to make 4 days a week into the city on gentle country roads with minimal traffic. It would be a waste not to enjoy myself during all those hours i'll be driving it (: Why do you guys ride? what are the roads like where you live?
  8. Just purchased my first motorbike (17 years old, UK, Scotland, Highland) , it's a Yamaha YBR 125CC, I'm desperately needing motorbike gear asap. I can't seem to find much relevant information on how much i should be spending. I can find boots for £500 and for £30, Jackets for £5000 and £50. Pretty much what i need opinions and facts on is: What price range would you be looking at if you are riding a bike all year round and as much protection as possible. It's inevitable I'll have an accident within the next 2 years on some kind of scale, I'm not scared of blood, grazing and bashing. As long as my gear can keep my bones from my breaking and my brain from smashing!! In Scotland we have cold winters and cool summers so I'm looking for gear which will be water proof / warm. Any and all your opinions on educating a 17 year old, new biker on buying and using protective gear would be amazing. Thanks in advance (:
