I calculate I should save about 50 per week so shouldn't take too long!

I think I'll get a cheapish 4 stroke for the time being and put a little money away. There's no point in getting a 2stroke 125 for it to be a money pit with rebuilds and repairs.

Where did you find that YBR TJenkos? Sounds about perfect tbh'
The YBR was off AutoTrader, came with 3 months warranty too

not very unreliable but unreliable, aprilia's can be reliable if you maintain it and look after it also chinese bikes are rubbish, i had a chinese quad and i had more fun stepping in dog poo than i did no the quad
