Wotcha Fettler !
As you may have noticed, we're nowt to do with the magazine these days - although RickP pops in with technical help quite often, and usually mentions us somewhere in his column.
Jim Moore is also a member, but we rarely hear from him.

Hi there, new to this forum malarky this is the first one ever that I have actually posted on. As well as a passion for two wheel thingies have started to squeeze old brit metal in amongst the shiney jap stuff. The first interloper is a James Captain in trials mode as I love to go out into the country and get cold, wet and silly. No doubt this will not be the only bike to leave oil stains on the garage floor but am having so much fun with it both in and out of the garage.

Hi everyone :D

New kid on the block, but with a passion for everything two wheels.

Been on the road 3 years, although been off of the bike since April this year following a meeting with a car, a brick wall and the tarmac club! And then my licence run out (Still L plated).

Started out on a 06 plate Suzuki Burgman 125, before moving onto a Pioneer Nevada and finally a Honda CG 125 - from 1981 and a restoration project.

I was working as a DJ in October, but due to the lights causing Peti-Mal fits I had to stop, since then I have dedicated my time to Volunteering as an Ambulance Assistant, but as far as a proper job goes I don't currently have one.

In May I was working for a Motorbike dealership, which is how I acquired the CG, and also where I found a passion in older Motorbikes.

Look forward to talking to you all :)

Wotcha Welshie !
Welcome Aboard.
The little CG125 is a popular little bike, a fair few members on here either own, or have owned one over the years.
We seem to be having a flurry of new forumites, maybe it's the weather !

Thanks for the welcome's!

I never did see myself owning one, they just seemed too slow and sluggish, and I like to have a bit of power there for tricky situations.

I don't know if it is normal for a CG to be on one wheel, or to do the clock (sat nav backed this up) But I am assuming something has been tweaked with within the last 30 years for it to be able to do this. :shock:
