So I've had the R125 for one day now and have twice had cars try it on at the lights. Neither were boy racer cars and one even continued over the central line half on the other side of the road - it got to the point that I backed off to let him pass as I wasn't going to get someone killed because of a rush of blood to the chipolata. Now this never ever happened on the DNA 50 so it got me thinking what could have caused the sudden change. The only thing I could think was that now I have to use L plates and the ones the shop fitted were so in your face that they must have been a shining beacon saying slow bike. Although the Gilera was only a 50cc it looked more or less like a normal bike to the average car driver and the absence of L plates may have further backed this up, hence no knobheads trying it on. So I have made my first 'modification'. The original L plate was hanging off the rear numberplate and very in your face. Do you think the 5-0's will be bothered?
