New user here. Really glad to have joined, seems like a great community!
So a bit of context:
I’m 24 and passed my CBT about two months ago and have been riding in London for over a month and loving it.
I bought a second hand Vespa Lx125 (fourth owner) and it’s in pretty good knick. It is however missing its right wing mirror but I’m getting that sorted.
So…I’m thinking of taking it across the country. I don’t have a full license so I would be sticking to smaller roads and A roads. I’m ultimately looking to surprise my girlfriend in Edinburgh in the next couple of weeks. I’ve been doing some digging online and it seems doable if I take it slow and take a couple of days to do it. The idea of properly travelling on it really appeals to me. I’m also planning on going down to visit family in Somerset on it as a sort of trial run.
Am I crazy? Is it dangerous? Is driving on A roads on a 125 unbelievably boring? If I do do it how should I prepare?
Hope this is the right topic and category to be posting on, if not (as I said, new user) please direct me to the right one.
