So after suffering on a moped for a year i managed to persuade my parents to let me buy a new bigger bike.
Originally i was looking at honda cbr125's, but i couldnt find any decent ones for the right price, so then i looked at yamaha r125's, but they were a little to expensive for me.
So i settled for the Honda CBF 125.
Originally when i bought it I wanted to MOD the hell out of it, but soon i found there was a distinct lack of modding feasibility for it as no one seems to have changed anything.
So i slowly changed little things:
Wheel tape (6mm on the front and 10mm on the back)
heres a few images:
this is the moped I had :p the little chav ...

6mm wheel tape both sides

Well I think they are the same size, but the actual tire is bigger and the wheel is smaller:/

If they used same size wheel maybe gap not look so big... Always think those bikes looks like someone has stolen bit of the front end.
Whatcha mean?? To me the front end seems really high, but then the front suspension is really soft...


Also im going to sketch\photoshop the extended bodywork idea, and see what you guys think :)

gap between the fron wheel and rest of the bike seems massive if wheel was bigger may not look so big... but could look silly so i like the idea of lower panels, look forward to see that
