I know this has nothing to do with sport but, after a good six weeks or so of searching and stressing out, I have finally found AND PURCHASED my first motorcycle! No longer am I a founding member of Bearhawks Motorcycle Club…without a bike…

The elongated wait and huge amount of inconvenience has all been worth it, however. I have found what it just about the perfect bike for me.

A 2005 Suzuki VL125 INTRUDER , it ticks every box I had in mind. It’s black (very important), it’s a cruiser, it’s a 125cc engine (the only thing I can legally drive), it’s in mint condition, it has only done 1066 miles and it was reduced in price to just about meet my budget!

I found it online this morning (when I woke up in Hammersmith), so I drove to Chesham to see it and bought it there and then, along with some leathers and general protective gear so I don’t…y’know…die.

All that’s left to do is take to the open roads and be AWESOME!

    Good choice – the VL125 Truder is the last of the “man-size” learner legal V twin cruisers. Narrowly tips the Yamaha 125 XVS in the looks stakes.

      Thanks David! I actually had my heart set on a Honda VT125 – the Shadow. Sadly, a couple of bike dealers really let me down. When I found this one in perfect condition with 1200 miles on the clock, I couldn’t turn it down 🙂 Alas, somebody smashed into the side of it 11 days later and wrote it off! I’ve had it repaired now and, to be honest, it’s nice to not be so precious about it these days.
